Artistic Director:

Dr. Bruce Borton

The Madrigal Choir of Binghamton, the select chamber choral ensemble founded by Anne Boyer Cotten in 1978, selected Dr. Bruce Borton as the next Artistic Director in 2011.

Selected after a 20-month search process, Dr. Borton brings a great deal of experience to the podium. He's Director of Choral activities at Binghamton University, where he's taught since 1988. For ten years prior to that, he was conducting assistant to the legendary Robert Shaw with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus. No stranger to the Madrigal Choir, Dr. Borton has sung with the group, led the singers as a guest conductor, and has served on the board of directors.

Anne Cotten didn't set out to lead a choir for 33 years. She and some friends just gathered around her dining room table to sing music they liked. After a while, they were saying "Hey, we're pretty good, we should perform!". Under Anne's leadership, the choir has premiered a new work by Alice Parker, commissioned and premiered a new piece by British composer Barry Seaman, and performed over 200 concerts in the Greater Binghamton area and beyond, including Anne's signature concert "Ceremony and Celebration for Twelfth Night." With her retirement from Broome Community College's Department of Fine and Media Arts, Anne has moved to Arizona, closer to family.


Founded in 1978 by Anne Boyer Cotten, The Madrigal Choir of Binghamton is a not-for-profit chamber choir dedicated to the art of a cappella choral performance. We perform sacred and secular works drawn from the medieval period through the present in concerts around the Binghamton, NY area.
