We are proud to announce that Eileen Hampshire Mackintosh has been named Chorus Master of the new Delaware Valley Opera Chorus. The Chorus is a vital part of opera, and we invite all interested singers to contact us for information on how to join.

In addition to performing in opera performances during the Summer Festival, the Chorus will also perform great chorus works from opera and other repertoire in their two Choral Concerts, scheduled for April and December of 2011.

Please contact the DVO Chorus Master here for more information or to arrange an audition.


“The Greeks said that music and astronomy were two sides of the same coin. Astronomy was seen as the study of relationships between observable, permanent, external objects, and music was seen as the study of relationships between invisible, internal, hidden objects. Music has a way of finding the big, invisible moving pieces inside our hearts and souls, and helping us figure out the position of things inside us… Music allows us to move around those big invisible pieces or ourselves and rearrange our insides so that we can express what we feel, even when we can't talk about it… This is why music matters.”

– Karl Paulnack, Director of the Music Division at Boston Conservatory, from a welcome address given to parents of incoming students, September 1, 2004
