Dave Conrad is a resident of Ouray, and has long dreamed of bringing a Choral Festival to Ouray. Dave and his wife Sue, met through music, and have been singing in choirs together since 10th grade (53 years!). Specifically, Dave & Sue have sung under Dr Earl Rivers' (SJCF Music Director) baton since 1984. Privileged to sing in an exceptional church choir in Cincinnati, they have also sung with Dr Rivers at Carnegie Hall (twice), Greece, Vienna, Paris, and Florence. Dave is grateful to the Ouray County Performing Arts Guild for sharing the vision of bringing an outstanding Choral Festival to the residents and visitors of the San Juans. Beautiful music in a beautiful setting… Music and singing are a joy that enriches our lives.
