Written by 

Melodie G. Galloway will take over as the new musical director for the Lake Junaluska Singers starting Jan. 1.

“Directing the Junaluska Singers represents a lifelong dream for me,” said Galloway. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with this premiere ensemble.”

Galloway’s experience as a conductor and soprano soloist includes opera, oratorio, musical theatre, and a professional vocal ensemble, where she has been a soloist in Russia, Estonia, Ireland, England, and Spain. She is in regional demand as a conductor, clinician, and adjudicator.

Her research work includes two international conference presentations and an article written for the peer-reviewed UK journal, Studies in Musical Theatre, to be published in the January 2010 issue.

Galloway is a Lake Junaluska Singer Alumna, having sung for several seasons. She has also served as a LJS accompanist, soloist, choreographer, and as the agent for orchestra personnel for LJS concerts.

Galloway holds a Master’s degree from Florida State University in Vocal Performance and a Doctor of Musical Arts in Conducting from the University of Greensboro.

Currently, Galloway is an assistant professor in music at UNC-Asheville, directing the University Singers, the Chamber Singers, and Studio 18 - an advanced vocal jazz ensemble, and she is the Coordinator of Vocal Studies.
