DW@90 Legacy Commission


Dale Warland has touched so many lives through his conducting, recording, commissioning, mentoring, and his kindness. In honor of his continuing impact, I’m writing to let you know of an initiative to honor and celebrate him on his 90th birthday, April 14, 2022.  The Singers – Minnesota Choral Artists led by Artistic Director Matthew Culloton (himself mentored by Dale) will premiere a newly commissioned piece by Timothy C. Takach on a text by Brian Newhouse. The Singers will be presenting a concert called “Dale Warland at 90: A Legacy Celebration” in March 2022 — a program that will include this new work. 

Are you interested in honoring Dale Warland with a gift of any size toward this commission? 

Because it’s for Dale, we’re sending this invitation out far and wide. Feel free to pass it on. Our wish is to see this invitation spread organically to the many friends that Dale has made across his lifetime. When the finished score is printed, every contributor who supported this new commission — no matter how small or large your gift — will be listed on the inside page as “Friends.”

Deadline for your gift: April 14, 2021 (one year before Dale’s 90th)

The Singers’ organization is serving as the fiscal agent of this commission, in addition to singing the premiere in 2022. To make a tax-deductible gift to this project, simply donate in one of the two following ways:

The Singers, 797 Summit Ave., Suite B, St. Paul, MN  55105.

Again, the deadline for your gift: April 14, 2021

Please note, this Warland project is the first in a series of commissions that The Singers will generate in the years ahead — activities central to both their mission since their founding, and Dale’s own passionate, decades-long advocacy for new choral music.
