Former Boys Chorister Named Repertory Singers Director
“The Tucson Boys Chorus was a foundation of my musical education,” he said. “It was where I first learned to represent and serve my community as a musician and a leader.”
During his undergraduate years at UA, he served as assistant director of Tucson Masterworks Chorale and the Helios Ensemble. He also was music director at the Academy of Tucson High School and choir director at Holy Way Presbyterian Church.
He continued leading choirs in Flagstaff including the Harold M. Harter Memorial Handbell Choir and Chamber Singers.
“Ryan is an expressive conductor,” Edith Copley, one of his professors at NAU, said in a written statement. “He honors the music, connects with the audience and truly cares about the people in his ensemble.”
