Two Grammy Nominations For Choralist Member Steve Barnett
Date: December 5, 2003
by BarMusProd at aol.com
The 46th Annual Grammy Awards nominations were announced yesterday.
I'm very proud to announce, as an active member of Choralist, that two of my recent recording productions have been nominated. First of all, Twin Cities'-based choral treasure Dale Warland and the Dale Warland Singers have been nominated in the "Best Choral Performance" Category for the recording of Dominick Argento's "Walden Pond". This CD was produced and recorded by the Twin Cities-based production team of Producer (and Choralist member) Steve Barnett and recording engineer Preston Smith. I have been the recording producer for the Dale Warland Singers for 10 years and have known Dale for most of my life. I am personally thrilled for Dale and the Singers that this nomination has been added to the many honors he has garnered internationally over the years. They are the only U.S.-based chorus to be included in the nominations for this category.
And on a more personal level, composer Dominick Argento was my orchestration and composition teacher at the University of Minnesota way too many years ago, but his influence (and friendship) remains with me still. I am so pleased that he is being honored again, not only in this category, but also for his composition "Casa Guidi" which is nominated in two other categories.
In addition, San Francisco-based Chanticleer is again back in the nominations after our successful two-time Grammy triumph in New York City last year. This year we are nominated in the Best Classical Crossover Category for their wonderful and eclectic "Our American Journey" CD, for which Producer Steve Barnett and Engineer Preston Smith were again the production team. Music Director Joseph Jennings and his unparalled work with Chanticleer over the years is again being honored. I have been Chanticleer's recording producer for over 16 years.
Happy Holidays to all!
And best wishes, Steve

Steve Barnett & Joseph Jennings
Based in San Francisco, California, Chanticleer is a full-time classical vocal ensemble in the United States. Over the last three decades, Chanticleer has developed a grand reputation for its interpretation of Renaissance music, but it performs a wide repertoire of jazz, gospel, and other venturesome new music and is widely known as an "Orchestra of Voices". It was named for the "clear singing rooster" in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales.

A Grammy Award (originally called Gramophone Award) — or Grammy — is an accolade by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to recognize outstanding achievement in the music industry. The annual awards ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a widely viewed televised ceremony. It is the music equivalent to the Emmy Awards for television, the Tony Award for stage and the Academy Awards for film.
The first Grammy Awards ceremony was held on May 4, 1959, to honor musical accomplishments by performers for the year 1958. Following the 2011 ceremony, NARAS overhauled many Grammy Award categories for 2012. The 54th Grammy Awards will be held on February 12, 2012 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
