Melodia Women's Choir of New York City
Cynthia Powell, Artistic Director and Founding Conductor
Founded by Jenny Clarke, Executive Director, in 2003, Melodia Women's Choir is a fresh voice on the New York choral scene. An ensemble of 32 singers, Melodia explores and performs rarely heard music for women’s voices in many different styles, and nurtures emerging women composers through commissions, residencies and performances. Under the direction of Cynthia Powell, founding conductor and Artistic Director, Melodia has performed at Symphony Space, Merkin Concert Hall, Church of Saint Ignatius Loyola in collaboration with Sacred Music in a Sacred Space, and the Surrogate’s Courthouse as guest artists at Women History Month Celebrations for the NYC Comptroller. We have been heard on WQXR - The Choral Mix with Kent Tritle and on WNYC radio, and seen on NBC TV.
