“The Williamsport Civic Chorus is an open community of singers dedicated to making fine music accessible to all through education, participation and inspiration.”

 

Music Director Michael (Mike) Connor earned a bachelor of arts degree in music from the Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania and a master of science in education from Bucknell, where as graduate assistant to the renowned Dr. William Payn, he frequently conducted the Bucknell University Chorale.  Currently, Mike teaches music at Central Mountain Middle School in Lock Haven.  He also directs the Williamsport Gesang Verein Harmoniae, and has previously served as choir director for Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Montoursville, and as interim music director for the Williamsport Chamber Choir.  Mike has appeared as tenor soloist with the Civic Chorus on several occasions.  Beyond that, his demonstrated skills as an inspiring composer, band, and orchestra director go hand-in-hand with Mike’s commitment to creating a positive, safe, and enjoyable environment for performers.
