Lisa GrahamEvelyn Barry Director of the Choral Program; Lecturer in Music
Conductor of Choral Program, including Choir, Chamber Singers, and Choral Scholars.
My doctoral research focused on choral music that was arranged, composed, and performed in the concentration camps during the Holocaust.
In addition to conducting the choral ensembles, instruction in the Music Department includes conducting, music theory, and ear training. Choral Scholars topics include leadership, musicianship, literature, and methods. Module seminar topics have included cantatas by J.S. Bach and the requiem masses of Mozart, Verdi, Brahms, and Britten.
I am the music director of the Brookline Chorus, an auditioned, mixed chorus of approximately 100 voices performing an annual concert series in the Boston area. Conductor of the Handel and Haydn Society's Young Women's Chorus, a select group of high-school students from approximately 30 communities in Massachusetts. I'm a founder and current president-elect of the National Collegiate Choral Organization, serving conductors of college level ensembles.
Interests outside of work include traveling, kayaking, photography, and sushi.
