TRIBUTES

"Dale Warland is one of the best choirmasters I have ever known. It was a great pleasure for me to cooperate with him on many occasions. Each of the performances he prepared was excellent."
~ Krzysztof Penderecki, Conductor & Composer, Poland

"We watch him, trying to figure out how he does it…. Maybe it's something we don't see, a genuine concern and caring for his singers, an emotional vulnerability that lets him be touched by the core of the music, and an overwhelming desire to express in perfect heavenly sound what is on the page. From one of the many composers whose works you have championed, thank you!"
~ Carol Barnett, DWS Composer-in-Residence 1992 -2001
