The Blue Ridge Singers (BRS) is a group of musicians dedicated to the choral art. The ensemble explores an array of musical styles to create a truly comprehensive choral experience. The choir was established in the fall of 2009 in Front Royal, Virginia by a group of singers looking to explore a new avenue in choral singing in their community. Initiated by Pat Spory, her daughter Beth Whitney, and friends in the community, the BRS continues to grow and thrive. First directed by Tom Bowen, the group has maintained a consistent number of auditioned singers since its inception.
Dr. Jeffrey Alban was appointed artistic director of BRS in June of 2011. Under his leadership, BRS currently has twenty-three singers. Presenting two concert sessions in December and April, the singers will present many familiar and newly-composed works for chamber choir.
