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.
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.
