Meet Myriad Ensemble
Myriad started as a small 'summer choir' of just seven singers who gathered to sing for fun. After Elise (Myriad's Artistic Director and founder) finished grad school, this small group embarked on a journey to turn a hobby collective into a formal choral organization. This was the beginning of Myriad.
The choir offers a community for young women who love to sing, meet like-minded individuals, have fun and make some great music in the process.
Today, Myriad is a growing choral organization with 50 singers, paid staff, donors, patrons and an ever growing audience base. The heart of our vision is community and artistic innovation - principles that continue to guide our purpose today.
To raise the voices of women through the collaboration, exploration, and performance of women’s choral repertoire.
To cultivate connectivity through the art of women’s choral music
To inspire and lead in the choral art by amplifying women’s voices through community, vocal excellence, and innovative programming
