LGBT choral-arts organization Windy City Performing Arts has named Paul Caldwell as artistic director of Windy City Gay Chorus and Aria, Windy City Performing Arts' women's chorus.
In addition to directing WCPA's flagship choruses, Caldwell is artistic director of the Youth Choral Theater of Chicago, a community-based after-school program enrolling 200 young people in Chicago's northern suburbs. Additionally, he is artistic director for the ï¿½Canta! Costa Rica festival in San Jose, Calif., and resident conductor for the Sing A Mile High choral festival in Denver.
Caldwell's debut performance will be at Windy City Performing Arts' spring concert entitled "A Flood of Hope," a special benefit for the Ali Forney Center, a shelter for homeless LGBT youth in New York City that was devastated by Hurricane Sandy last fall.
