Notes & Reviews:

This select, 40-voice ensemble regularly commissions and performs new music for women's voices. An outgrowth of this emphasis is the publication of the Saint Mary's College Choral series, a collection of new works, published by Earthsongs of Corvallis, Oregon. The Choir has performed throughout the United States at conventions and at workshops, and has performed regularly with the Notre Dame Glee Club in joint performances with the South Bend Symphony Orchestra. Their conductor, Nancy Menk, is a graduate of the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. Her teachers have included Earl Rivers and Helmuth Rilling.
