WELCOME

Seeking a guest conductor for your honors choir, a career music educator for your professional development conference, a guest lecturer for your conducting class, or an experienced adjudicator/clinician/coach for your assessment/festival/touring choir?  I would be honored to serve in any of those roles.

 

I specialize in:

  • offering challenging, educational, and enjoyable repertoire for All-State, All-Region, All-District, All-County, and All-City honors choirs, 

  • providing informative professional development sessions  on a variety of choral music-related topics, including my  workshop series:The Refreshed Conductor  and The Expressive Conductor.

  • presenting lecture demonstrations on the elements of expressive, artistic choral conducting, and

  • leading choral clinics designed to help you take your choir to the next level in artistic, expressive performance.

Drop me an email or give me a call and let's talk about how I might be able to help.

Quote of the month (June 2024):

"One of the heights in choral music is having the choir reach the final pianissimo note of an emotion-filled song, giving that final cut-off, and experiencing total silence in the concert hall. It is at that moment you know that everyone in attendance is melded emotionally and intimately sharing those intense feelings. Music has THAT power."

- Don Krudop

  • "Don Krudop is on a very short list of conductors who can see into my heart as a composer."  - Daniel E. Gawthrop

  • "Your choir is one of the finest I've ever worked with." - Rodney Eichenberger

  • "I wish all of you could come up here and see the magic that happens between this man and this choir." - Doreen Rao

  • "Best of all was the guest ensemble, Vox Harmonia, a student chamber choir from the Visual and Performing Arts Academy at Salem High School, Virginia Beach. Holding hands, leaning their bodies forward, and riveting wide-eyed attention on conductor Don Krudop, they sang with a rapt concentration and ravishing sound that took the breath away."  - Joseph Bano, The Washington Post, in a review of the City Choir of Washington Christmas concert at the National Presbyterian Church.

  • "VERY APPRECIATED, RESPECTED, AND LOVED. Those are the stats your students will remember & truly care about. Those stats you earned by being a good, caring, kind teacher & taskmaster, and as we all grew....a friend. You are loved more than you know. You are the type of teacher few children ever get. You make a difference in our lives because you truly care. You are passionate about music and have shown us it's not just an escape. It is a calling.You are not just a teacher, you are a mentor."  - Rachelle Peterson
