UU Choir Camp — Singing in the Pines

Saturday, August 11 – Wednesday, August 15, 2018


Choir Camp Facilitator, Scott Roewe

Guest Choir Director, Rev. Ian W. Riddell

The theme for this year’s Choir Camp will be “connections”. Singing together can connect our minds, hearts and spirits with those around us. It can bring stonger connection with our own strength and hope. And it can bring connections in the greater community with our actions and thoughts. So, let’s sing together and get connected!

Again this summer’s guest choir director will be the Rev. Ian W. Riddell who serves as the Minister of Music and Worship Arts at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego.  Before he and his husband moved to San Diego in 2015, Rev. Ian served our Las Vegas congregation as Developmental Minister for three years. A graduate of Meadville Lombard Theological School and the University of Toronto Faculty of Music, Rev. Ian previously served as Director of Music Ministry in congregations in Madison, Wisconsin, and State College, Pennsylvania, taught music in elementary schools in Victoria, BC, and conducted Perfect Harmony Men’s Chorus in Madison and the Musaic LGBT Choir in Victoria.

Choir camp facilitator Scott Roewe began playing music around the time he could sit up straight, playing the bongos while his mother played piano.  He went on to write music for the hit television show Rescue 911, and helped with the production of music for the top ranked television show C.S.I.  Scott was a recording artist signed to Geffen records with the band Wild Colonials.  His mother also took him to Sunday school at the UU church in Wilmington, Delaware, and now he works as music director at the UU Church in Santa Clarita.  He brings his passion for music, people, and community to Singing in the Pines by helping to organize the event, singing with the choir, playing various instruments, and leading salsa dancing classes!

If you yearn to connect with others through music, if your heart is open to learning new music, if you want to commune with others for 5 days at camp, then come add your voice to “Singing in the Pines”.  Enjoy morning keynote speaker, swimming, hike to the lake, salsa dancing, R & R, good food and friends…..and lots of singing!

If you have songs about connections, please bring them to Choir Camp!
