|Giselle Wyers is Associate Director
of Choral Studies and Voice at the University of Washington, where she
conducts the University Chorale and teaches undergraduate choral conducting
and graduate choral repertoire as well as courses in music education and
Wyers is a leading national figure in the application of Laban movement
theory in music, offering workshops across the nation for conductors and
choirs. She is a regular member of the Westminster Summer Sessions, where
she co-teaches choral conducting with James Jordan.
Wyers' dedication to exposing audiences to the music of contemporary
American composers earned her a Medici Scholar Award and has led to numerous
publications in national journals, including Choral Journal and American
Choral Review. She is especially interested in exploring how modern
composers use music as a form of peace-making and social justice.
Wyers is in frequent demand as a clinician and guest conductor throughout
the United States. As a composer, her setting of Ave Maria (Earthsongs) won
the Cambridge Singers International Choral Composition Competition, and has
been performed in the USA, Ecuador, Poland, Latvia, and Germany. As a
vocalist, she has recorded with Westminster Symphonic Choir, Oregon
Repertory Singers, and Linda Ronstadt.
Wyers holds a DMA in Conducting from University of Arizona, where she
studied with Maurice Skones and minored in Historical Musicology with John
Brobeck. She earned her master's degree from Westminster Choir College,
where she founded the Greater Princeton Youth Chamber Orchestra, and her
bachelor's degree from UC-Santa Cruz, where she founded the San Lorenzo
Valley Community Chorus and Orchestra.
