Voices of Gwynedd
A 100-member choir comprised of full- and part-time students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of Gwynedd Mercy University
Directed by Grammy-nominated Carol Evans, a seasoned soprano and assistant professor of music in the School of Arts and Sciences, the choir has developed into a highly professional choral ensemble presenting quality programs representing many different genres.
Performances by the choir and our musical collaborators are establishing GMercyU as a strong cultural presence in Southeastern Pennsylvania and the entire tri-state area.
