The Festival Chorus gathers Old North’s Senior Choir together with enthusiastic singers – amateur to professional – from many neighboring communities in Marblehead. Each season, the Festival Chorus welcomes new voices while maintaining a devoted ensemble from previous years; this season’s Chorus totals over one hundred participants. Encouraged by a love for music and a reputation as the North Shore’s most spirited and talented volunteer choirs, the Festival Chorus & Orchestra has been lauded for its outstanding performances of major choral works each year.
Director Maria van Kalken holds graduate and undergraduate degrees from the Oberlin and New England Conservatories of Music – primarily under the tutelage of Yuko Hayashi and the late Donald Teeters – and has amassed an education abroad in Amsterdam (Holland) and Pistoia (Italy).
