Amy Waldron

Amy Waldron, soprano, is currently seeking a Master’s Degree in Music, emphasizing choral conducting, from the Conservatory of Music and Dance at the University of Missouri, Kansas City.  She was awarded a Bachelor of Music Education degree with a vocal performance minor from the University of Kansas in 1998.  While at KU, she studied choral music with Simon Carrington and James Daugherty.  As a member of ensembles under Mr. Carrington’s direction, Amy performed the Mozart Coronation Mass at Carnegie Hall in May 1996 and toured England (1997), France (1998) and Hungary (1999).

In the fall of 1997, Amy traveled to Budapest, Hungary, to study choral music and conducting with renowned conductor and educator Éva Kollár at Eötvös Loránd University.  Whilst there, she also sang and traveled as a member of the Budapest Monteverdi Choir, which was awarded the Grand Prize at the International Choir Competition in Sligo, Ireland that year.

Since moving to Kansas City in 2000, Amy has sung as a member of the Kansas City Chorale, the Fine Arts Chorale, Octarium, and, most recently, Collegium Vocale, a Conservatory ensemble directed by Dr. Ryan Board which specializes in music of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and Baroque periods.  She has appeared as a soloist for the Youth Symphony of Kansas City (1998), the Grace & Holy Trinity Summer Recital Series (2001), the Northland Community Choir (2007), on Arlen Clarke’s album American Sacred Choral Music (2006) and in joint choir productions of the Bach St. Matthew Passion (2007), the Fauré Requiem (2007), and the Rutter Requiem (2008).

In July of 2008, Amy attended the Tallis Scholars Summer School in Seattle, WA where she had the privilege of singing English Renaissance music with Peter Phillips, David Woodcock, Janet Coxwell and Patrick Craig.   She recently received notice from the University Women’s Council that she was selected to receive a Graduate Assistance Fund Fellowship to attend the 10th anniversary of the Tallis Scholars Summer School in Oakham, England in July of 2009.

Amy has been the soprano section leader for Grace and Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral for the past eight years.  She has studied voice with Dr. Wendy Zaro, Rebecca Lloyd, and currently studies with Ida Nicolosi.

Amy is an Executive Producer of the Simon Carrington Chamber Singers.  She would like to acknowledge the dedication and hard work of the SCCS Board of Directors and of many other behind-the-scenes individuals who have contributed to its success.  She is thrilled to see the past several years’ worth of work finally come to fruition.
