David Carew is Director of Choral Activities at Southwestern Michigan College where he conducts four ensembles, teaches Aural Skills and Applied Voice. Before Southwestern, David taught middle and high school choral music in the Dowagiac and Edwardsburg School Districts.
He received his bachelor's degree from Western Michigan University in 1998 where he sang with the University Chorale under the direction of Dr. Craig S. Arnold and completed a Master’s Degree in Conducting from Michigan State University in 2005.
Active as a performer, David sings with the St. Joseph Valley Camerata, a professional choir based in Mishawaka, Indiana. David is the co-founder, conductor and singer with The Dogwood Chorale, a semi-professional choir under the umbrella of the Dogwood Fine Arts Festival in Dowagiac, Michigan. This ensemble, made up of music educators and community members with extensive performance backgrounds, also facilitates a middle school summer choir camp. He also conducts the Citadel Symphony Chorus which serves as the primary chorus for the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra.
The mission and purpose of the Two-Year College Choirs section is to provide a vehicle of communication from the board of directors to the membership. Repertoire and Standards committee chairs are required to contribute one article per year, due in September, as part of their responsibilities. We encourage out membership to submit news and articles of interest to the Two-Year College Choirs Chairman - See R&S Board Directory »
