Artistic Director Search

After building a solid musical foundation and guiding our organization’s artistic growth and development for ten successful years, our artistic director, Tess Orozco, will be leaving us at the end of December. We will miss Tess’ musicianship and artistry and thank her for all the guidance she has provided us. We wish her well as she moves on to new opportunities.

Our search committee is actively looking for a talented, experienced, and creative choral director who can support our mission and help us to continue the artistic growth we have experienced under Tess’ direction, while building membership and exploring the wonderful, diverse repertoire for women’s voices. We encourage anyone interested in being considered for the position to please contact Elizabeth Widdison, Search Committee Chair, at ejwiddison@comcast.net or by phone at (425) 761-9022 to begin discussions. We would also welcome any recommendations you may have for potential candidates to whom we could reach out.

We will be conducting preliminary interviews through September and will hold directing auditions with the full choir the morning of Saturday, November 8th. The appointment will be effective beginning January 2015.
