The Grand Monadnock Youth Choirs

Esther Rhoades, Artistic Director of the Grand Monadnock Youth Choirs, will be speaking about the recent transition from Founder Maria Belva's Direction to her own. The Grand Monadnock Youth Choirs is a 501c3 non-profit organization which began in 1997. Rhoades has been the Artistic Director since 2017 when Belva retired and moved to Maine. Rhoades is carrying the deep fundamental roots of the organization into the future with new opportunities and programming for the young singers in the Monadnock Region. In her presentation, Rhoades will highlight the organization's mission, vision, and Big Dreams for the future of the program, and will even lead Rotarians in some morning singing!

Esther Ruth Holland Rhoades is thrilled to be the Grand Monadnock Youth Choir's Artistic Director.  There are five GMYC ensembles under her direction, rehearsing in both Peterborough and Keene.  Her energetic teaching style, expertise in music, and infectious positivity allow GMYC singers to thrive and grow not only musically, but also as individuals.
