Echo Women’s Choir
guest conductor, 2012 Season
Echo Women’s Choir isn’t a project–they’ve been around 20 years. Echo is a non-audition 4-part women’s choir that performs repertoire from many musical traditions around the world. I’ve loved being a member of Echo for the last seven years, and it’s been amazing to have a chance to conduct this incredible group of 80 women.

Holy Trinity Church, 10 Trinity Square, Toronto
I am one of approximately 10 female voices participating in the as-yet unnamed choir established by Fides Krucker, accompanied by Tania Gill. Other than that we’re a group of people singing together, this ‘choir’ defies choirs in almost every way, through intensive individual voice work, movement, and improvisation. The repertoire largely reinterprets popular songs from the twentieth century, from Billie Holiday to the Beatles to Leonard Cohen. Performances have to date taken place in women’s shelters in Toronto, encouraging interaction and mutual learning and sharing as well as singing and listening. As soon as we have any public performances or a name, I’ll let you know!
