Our Director - Miriam Anderson
We are so happy to announce that Miriam Anderson has accepted the position of Director of the Seattle Labor Chorus! We are so thrilled to have her and can't wait to gather again in song. Until then, we will continue to sing into our computers and compile harmony in bytes that will be posted both on Facebook and on our web site on the Music tab.
Miriam will help us continue to give labor a voice in the streets and in concert halls. She is an accomplished conductor, and she has a passion for singing songs of social significance. She has been involved in music her whole life and began singing in choirs and playing percussion at a young age. In 2011 she received her BA in music and peace and conflict studies from UC Berkeley, and in 2017 received her MM in choral conducting from the University of Washington. Outside of the Seattle Labor Chorus, Miriam works with a number of local ensembles including the Seattle Girls Choir Piccolini ensemble, Skyline Chorale, Foundation House Sound of Music Chorus, the Northminster Presbyterian Church Choir, Choir of the Sound, and the Seattle Youth Opera Project.
