WENHAM, MA-Gordon College is pleased to announce open auditions for its Symphonic Chorale, a choral ensemble comprised of members of the local community, along with Gordon students, faculty, staff and alumni. Now in its fourth year, the Chorale will be led by new conductor Ellen Gilson Voth, who received her Doctorate of Musical Arts from The Hartt School at the University of Hartford and was recently appointed Assistant Professor of Music at Gordon College.

A gifted and committed leader, Voth says "the Symphonic Chorale is a wonderful vehicle for connecting the vitality of the Gordon music department with the many resources and talents among the North Shore community. I look forward to building those connections and joining Gordon in its commitment to integrating artistic excellence and expression of faith through choral music."
