PROVIDENCE SINGERS celebrates two notable anniversaries this year: 50 years of choral singing and nine years under the leadership of artistic director Dr. Christine Noel. Since taking the podium, Dr. Noel has led the choir through world premieres, their fourth commercial recording, and many collaborative performances with the Rhode Island Philharmonic, including annual performances of Handel’s Messiah. Her busy spring season includes Bach’s Magnificat on March 5, a concert of musical theater choruses on April 3, and Beethoven’s 9th Symphony in May.
A Rhode Island native, Dr. Noel attended Rhode Island College, then studied in Italy and Hungary before pursuing her masters and doctorate degrees at Boston University. Deeply committed to music education, she is the founder and artistic director of the Rhode Island Children’s Chorus, a program that has taught over 2,000 singers over the past 19 years. Her students have performed in Carnegie Hall (2019) and appeared in the movie Moonrise Kingdom (2012). Several former RICC singers are pursuing careers in music education and sharing the joy of singing with a new generation.
