Three Rivers Chorus, Ellen Oak, artistic director, is a small, auditioned SATB ensemble. Oak's holistic, body-centered approach to singing integrates deep respect for the individual and high expectations for the group. Collaboration with other musicians, visual and performing artists, and community groups is integral to our music-making. Our adventurous repertoire, while rooted in the western classical tradition, ranges widely and often includes surprising juxtapositions and resonances.
