A message from our Artistic Director, Jane Ring Frank… Listen as Jane talks about how we have spent our time last year without the ability to perform as well as the beautiful new music we have commissioned.
A conversation between composer Melissa Dunphy and poet Melissa Apperson, whose text was used for “Grown Wild”. Listen as they talk about the creative process and their collaboration. We can’t wait to share this piece with you at an upcoming concert.
Concerts & Events
With great excitement we announce a new commission, Grown Wild, by Melissa Dunphy.
Composer Melissa Dunphy specializes in political, vocal, and theatrical music. She first came to national attention when her large-scale work the Gonzales Cantata was featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, National Review, Fox News, and on The Rachel Maddow Show, and was staged by American Opera Theater in a sold-out run. Dunphy is the recipient of a 2020 Opera America Discovery Grant for Alice Tierney, a new opera commission by Oberlin Conservatory set to premiere in 2023.

Under the direction of Jane Ring Frank, we make wonderful music together. We learn about vocal technique and music theory, we are challenged, and we have fun. Learn more about auditions or contact Chorus Manager Patsy Eickelberg at email@example.com with any questions.
“Choral music holds great intellectual and emotional power and has the means, above all arts, to create community—not only among singers but between singers and their audience.”
—Jane Ring Frank
