B. Welcoming Committee

A smile is the universal welcome. --Max Eastman

Along with a smile, we wish to extend to our new singers a warm welcome! And the same to singers who are now returning. As a new member, you will be partnered with a veteran singer -- your chorus Buddy -- to orient you thorough your first semester. Watch for the Welcoming Committee's new member orientation session, held a few weeks into each season. It will help explain chorus doings and answer any and all questions. There is more to the BGMC than singing and your Buddy will explain all that's happening in the life of the chorus. Veteran singers, we're counting on you to volunteer for Buddy service and help welcome new singers.

C. Artistic Director & Accompanist

Being a conductor is kind of a hybrid profession because most fundamentally, it is being someone who is a coach, a trainer, an editor, a director. --Michael Tilson Thomas

The Artistic Director (AD) is an employee of the BGMC and is appointed by the Board of Directors to provide musical leadership for the chorus. The AD is authorized to make such decisions as:

● Singer auditions ● Voice placement ● Programming
