Eastern Division Conference: Vassar Women’s Choir
Date: January 3, 2014
During the 2014 Eastern Division Conference, ACDA will present . . .
VASSAR WOMEN’S CHOIR
The Vassar Women’s Choir was founded in 1876 by Charlotte Finch. When Vassar became coeducational in 1969, it took two years for the first mixed chorus, now known as the Vassar College Choir, to be formed. During this time, the Women’s Chorus went through several transformations before becoming known as the Vassar College Women’s Chorus. Repertoire includes unaccompanied and accompanied works from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century. Since 2006, the Women’s Chorus has performed in Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia and has toured in Turkey and Spain. All three choral ensembles (Vassar College Choir, Women’s Chorus, and Madrigal Singers) toured in Oxford, London, and Paris in 2012. The Women’s Chorus debuted at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center and was honored with invitations to perform at ACDA and NCCO conferences in 2009–2010. This past year, the Vassar College Women’s Chorus premiered commissioned works by Tarik O’Regan, Eleanor Daley, and Joelle Wallach.
The ACDA Eastern Division Conference will take place February 5-8, 2014, in Baltimore, Maryland. You can register NOW.
