The Sunday Concert Series on February 18th, sponsored by the Springville Arts Commission, will feature baritone, Rex Kocherhans. Performances are held at the Springville Museum of Art starting at 4:30 p.m. and are free to the public.
Rex Kocherhans has been a featured soloist with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Salt Lake Choral Artists, Utah Baroque Ensemble, and BYU Singers. Rex is a founding member of the nationally renowned quartet Reprise, which won the Gold Medal at the international collegiate barbershop competition and has shared the stage with the King’s Singers. He performed in Europe, West Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East with the BYU Singers, including concerts at the Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall. Rex is founder and Artistic Director of Consortium and Deseret Chamber Singers, chamber ensembles based in Salt Lake City. His voice can be heard on numerous commercial recording projects. He currently lives in Lehi, Utah, with his four favorite people; his talented and supportive wife Kate and 3 daughters.
Last spring at Easter, Rex performed the role of Jesus Christ in the UVU production of J.S. Bach’s musical drama of the last week of Christ’s life, as recounted in the gospel of St. John, the St. John Passion. Last fall he was the soloist in a heartfelt tribute to the work of the poet-farmer Wendell Berry.
Next month, on March 18th, we will hear from Braden Rymer, a teacher in the Nebo school district and a very talented vocalist!
