A Note From our New Artistic Director, Dr. Corie Brown
I am thrilled to join the Mission Peak Chamber Singers as Artistic Director this spring. The organization’s mission to build a joyful, vocal, and involved community through song is strongly aligned with my own personal values as a conductor and educator. Whether I am on the podium with university singers, with a Renaissance chamber choir in Boulder, or with youth choirs in Bogotá, Colombia, my belief in the power of music to build and unite community is strong.
I’m joining a robust organization of two choirs, a fabulous artistic team, and a dedicated Board with excitement and vision to continue to build upon the strong foundation and commitment to true communal singing that is firmly embedded in this group. I look forward to expanding the boundaries of artistic possibilities with exciting programming, and of course, to getting to know both our current and future singers, and our wider community of Mission Peak patrons and supporters.
