On May 5, Jess Wade will mark 25 years as director of the Brazos Valley Chorale with a farewell concert. This is a conversation about that milestone.
Some 25 years ago, a jet-haired Jess Wade arrived in the Brazos Valley. Soon, as well as directing choruses at Texas A&M University, Wade became artistic director and conductor of the community-wide Brazos Valley Chorale. This spring the now silver-haired Wade is to conduct his last concert of the BV Chorale before retirement. Wade looks back at his quarter century directing the chorale and forward to his farewell concert, to be held at 3 p.m., Sunday, May 5, at Christ United Methodist Church in College Station.
