Karen Nevins, M.A. in Performance
CONDUCTOR AND ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Lenawee Community Chorus, Fall, 2013 -
Lenawee Community Chorus is where my own choral singing of major works began under the direction of Dr. Art Jones, Adrian College. It was in LCC that I sang my first oratorio solo and where I gained the self-confidence and encouragement to pursue my own degree in Music Ed as a non-traditional student at E.M.U! I am incredibly thrilled to serve LCC as their new Conductor and Artistic Director with a goal of giving back to them many rich musical experiences similar to those that were provided to me in the mid-1980's.
