Rehearsals: Tuesday evenings, 7–9 p.m., at The Hartt School
“Do not be afraid!” stresses Flores to adults who are considering joining the choir. “Many people think about singing in a group like this, but are afraid thinking they are not good enough or that they are too busy.” Regular attendance and a sense of humor are characteristics Flores appreciates in her students. “Participating in a choral ensemble will make you healthier, happier and more productive,” says Flores.
Flores, who has ties to The Hartt School as both a student and adjunct faculty member, began her role as a the new Director of the Adult Chamber Choir this past September. She completed her doctorate in choral conducting at Hartt, studying under Edward Bolkovac, DMA. Flores went on to teach undergraduate conducting and graduate choral literature at Hartt, and also directed the Hartt Camerata, The Hartt Chorale, and The Hartt Chamber Choir, including directing a couple of European tours.
