We are delighted to announce that Rebecca Parsons has accepted our offer to be the next Artistic Director of Aurora Chorus. Please Join us in Welcoming Rebecca to Aurora Chorus!
Rebecca Parsons is a choral director, composer, and pianist from Vancouver, Canada, who’s driven by a desire to cultivate thoughtful, collaborative, humanizing communities through great music.
A graduate of PSU’s Choral Conducting program, Rebecca has devoted much of her career to directing community choirs for social change and accessibility through El Sistema and Canadian organizations for adults with disabilities. In her years singing and working with Kokopelli Choirs in Edmonton, Alberta, Rebecca enjoyed regular collaboration with the University of Pretoria Youth Choir in South Africa, and toured Canada with the State House Girls Choir from Nairobi, Kenya, from which she developed a passion for oral traditions of music and for cross-cultural collaboration rooted in friendship and mutual respect.
As a composer, Rebecca is a regular collaborator with Canadian National Slam Poetry Champion Brandon Wint, with whom she’s had the pleasure of recording multiple albums, creating multimedia shows, and publishing choral repertoire.
She is thankful to be here.
