Beth Ann Bonnecroy
Instructor of Voice
Beth Ann Bonnecroy is in demand as a conductor, clinician, singer, and teacher of voice. Ms. Bonnecroy’s foundation as a singer and extensive experience as a voice teacher shape her priorities in conducting. Healthy singing and development of singers’ personal vocal technique are emphasized in the choirs she conducts, and contribute to the free, beautiful sound her choirs achieve.
Ms. Bonnecroy joined the artistic staff of the Northwest Girlchoir in 2000. She conducts Vivace, a choir of 25-30 middle school-level singers, modeling the highest standards of artistry and healthy singing in the developing voice. In 2006, she and colleague Rebecca Rottsolk founded Mirinesse Women’s Choir. Mirinesse received the high honor of performing at the national American Choral Directors Association convention in 2009 and the 2012 regional convention.
A lifelong church musician, she has conducted church choirs and handbell choirs of all ages. She is currently a member of the music staff of Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church in Seattle where she conducts the Chancel Choir and Handbell Choir.
An accomplished soprano, Ms. Bonnecroy is a frequent recitalist in the Seattle area. She can also be heard on movie soundtracks and trailers and on video games, including World of Warcraft and Diablo.
