Announcement of new Music Director

The committee is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Kathleen McGuire as the Star Chorale’s Music Director for 2017. Kathleen has thirty years’ experience conducting and teaching, working with choirs, orchestras, opera and dance companies, in community and professional settings, both in Australia and overseas. Though raised here in Melbourne, Kathleen has spent much of the last twenty years in the United States, where she was officially recognised by both the City of San Francisco and the California Senate for outstanding contributions in music. As well as being a vocalist herself, Kathleen is a well-regarded composer and plays multiple instruments. We are very excited to have her with us for this year.
