Camerata (Advanced Choral Setting)
Camerata is SCC’s mixed-voice SATB choir which provides young men and women, the opportunity to sing in an advanced choral setting. This ensemble delivers an excellent transitional opportunity for advanced choristers who are considering continuing with their vocal talents into the college level. Touring is also an important part of this program. Camerata is conducted by John Hendrix.
John Hendrix has been the director of Camerata since 1999, when the newly formed group was called the Chamber Singers. He has worked in both public and private music education, as well as church music for over 30 years. Currently, John teaches choral music at Shorewood High School in Shoreline, Washington, and is the choir director at Grace Lutheran Church in Lynnwood, Washington. Under his direction, his choirs have received national recognition, having been invited to perform at a variety of concerts, festivals, and competitions, where they have consistently received top ratings. John is also a vocalist and has had the opportunity to sing under many conductors and teachers who have had a profound influence, including Robert Shaw, Eric Ericson, Dale Warland, Paul Salumonivich, and Weston Noble. John has served as Repertoire and Standards Chair for both Community Choirs and Jazz Choirs for the American Choral Directors Association in Washington State.
