Joy Sherman is Director of Choral Music at Seattle University. She earned the Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in the Conducting and Literature of Choral Music from the University of Colorado at Boulder and has taught at four universities. Dr. Sherman has served as conductor and clinician for honor choirs and choral festivals throughout the United States including conducting the California All-State Women’s Choir and the Saratoga Springs, New York Area All-State Mixed Choir. She presented a lecture on glottal articulation of passages in early music at the national American Choral Director's Association convention in Washington D.C. and has published music with Santa Barbara Music Publishing and Alliance Music Publishing. Her article on the Articulation of Rapid Passages in Choral Music was published by the Choral Journal, the national journal of the American Choral Directors Association. She is a member of the honor society for musicians, Pi Kappa Lambda.
Dr. Sherman enjoys composing and arranging music and has performed several of her pieces with the Seattle University Choirs. Her arrangement of the charming English carol, Blessed be that maid, Marie, is published by Santa Barbara Music Publishing and has sold over 11,000 copies. Blessed bethat maid, Marie was performed and recorded by the internationally renowned Choraliers of San Jose State University. The Consort Singers are scheduled to perform her original composition, Ave Maria, at the winter concert of the Seattle University Choirs at St. Joseph Church in March of 2009.
Sherman says, “I love working with students as they seek to develop their voices into expressive and musically effective instruments. It is an exhilarating experience to bring a piece of music to life, to tell a story through song and to support students in the telling of that story.”
