CELEBRATING OUR 8th SEASON
We are pleased to welcome our new Director, Blake Clark!
Originally from Texas, Blake recently moved back from England where he completed a Master’s Degree in Choral Conducting at the University of Birmingham under the tutelage of Grammy Award-winning conductor Simon Halsey, CBE. While in England, Clark taught choral music at the university, conducted the City of Birmingham Symphony Chorus and the London Symphony Chorus, performed under legends such as Sir Simon Rattle, and was able to fulfill his passion for traveling.
Blake has enjoyed the privilege of working with the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony, City of Birmingham Symphony, and the BBC Philharmonic. Clark also has a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Composition from Baylor University and is a die-hard Baylor Bear. He has conducted ensembles across the US and Europe, and his original compositions have been heard all across Texas as well as Prague, Czech Republic. He is also the Co-Founder and Principal Conductor of The Texas Baroque Ensemble.
The Richmond Women’s Chorus is in its 8th Season!
Celebrating our seventh season, the Richmond Women’s Chorus promotes the strength, diversity, and empowerment of women by performing high quality music to inspire, entertain, educate, and unite our communities.
The Chorus performs music in a range of styles from traditional choral to contemporary pop; from serious to silly. We are open to all levels of singers, and provide resources including rehearsal CDs, sectional rehearsals, and workshops.
Come sing with us! We rehearse on Tuesday evenings in the auditorium at Imperial Plaza on the north side of Richmond at 7-9pm beginning in late August through our Spring concert. You are welcome to sit in on a rehearsal to see if we are the right chorus for you.
