Celebrating 20 years of singing!
inspiring singers, enriching community, expanding musical horizon
I know you all have been waiting to hear about our new director for the Oxford Civic Chorus. Great news! We plan to return to rehearsals this fall with Anthony Williams. Anthony comes to us with a passionate love for music from Memphis, Tennessee. Anthony is a native of Bruce, MS, and attended Indianola High School, Millsaps College in Jackson and the University of Memphis as well as the American Institute of Musical Studies in Austria with Bachelor and Master degrees in vocal performance and vocal music. Anthony has a wide background in music instruction in a variety of settings from Memphis University School to Christian Brothers University and Germantown Community Chorus and vocal performance and direction at numerous churches and even assistant cantor at Temple Israel in Memphis. His background is quite lengthy, and we cannot list every accomplishment, but one thing stands out, Anthony loves music and teaching, especially great choral music. His vision for the Oxford Civic Chorus is to increase in size, quality and performances.
You will find that Anthony’s rehearsal style is to greet each singer, start and end rehearsals on time, with vocal warm ups and light stretches to loosen up, and then lots of singing and instruction. With a keen ear, Anthony will work to fine tune each piece of music with the kind of training and attention to detail that we are accustomed to. He is excited beyond words to get to know each and every member of the chorus and to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for each of us anytime we gather to sing. Although he is knowledgeable and experienced in many music genres and styles, he is also hoping to learn from the chorus and is open to suggestions and ideas from us.
