The Emerald Ensemble enlightens the mind, uplifts the heart, and enriches the soul through great choral music presented with passion and skill. We envision a world made better through great choral music.
The Emerald Ensemble is a professional chamber choir featuring the finest voices in the Seattle area conducted by Gary D. Cannon. We sing music of all periods and genres, with emphasis on classical choral repertoire. The Emerald Ensemble was formed in March 2016 with the idea of creating a professional choir which engaged the finest musical talent available. In short, the Emerald Ensemble will help to advance the state of the choral art in our area.
Beyond traditional concerts and recordings, we also bring music directly to locations where the arts rarely extend, such as schools, prisons, hospice care facilities, or homeless shelters. Our mission is to help all people through great choral music presented with passion and skill. By freely providing choral music to underserved groups, we hope to enrich and enliven a broad scope of listeners.
