Dear Collegium Singers and Friends,
We are so pleased to announce to you that two days ago we hired Emily James to be our new Executive Director. Emily comes to us with deep experience in everything from music to film to the visual arts. She is a graduate of Ithaca College and has worked with many august non-profits including the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Towson Arts Collective, the Rockford Arts Foundation and Americans for the Arts. She will be of enormous help to us in the areas of singer recruitment, fund-raising, and publicity. With professional staff on board, we will move our organization far forward and raise our profile in this city, the choral capital of America.
All great things in 2010 for every one of you, your families, your loved ones, the Collegium and to every performing arts institution in Washington DC.
