The SJHS Concert Choir received a surprise workshop from Mr. Bob Stewart. Mr. Stewart grew up in Saint John and sang with the Rotary Boys Choir under the director of Dr. Kevin Langford. Mr. Stewart is a member of the American Choral Directors Association and is currently completing a Doctorate of Musical Arts in choral conducting in Brisbane, Australia. While visiting 'home' from Australia, Mr. Stewart kindly offered to work with the choir. He taught them a warmup and provided a variety of rehearsal tips as well as a great ways to recall vowel placements.
