Artistic Director

J. Scott Kovacs

J. Scott Kovacs is an established presence in the Pacific Northwest choral community. As Co-Chair of the Seattle Sings Choral Festival, as well as in his role on the Greater Seattle Choral Consortium’s (GSCC) Board of Directors, it’s hard not to observe first hand Scott’s fine executive leadership skills and contributions to our broader choral community.

Scott’s unique combination of choral conducting, vocal instruction, executive leadership and non-profit development is the critical blend Ancora needs to help strengthen our foundation and put us on a path of growth. Consider some of Scott’s local roles and contributions:

  • Assistant Director and singing member of St. Mark’s Compline Choir

  • Founder and executive director of the Emerald Ensemble (which expanded its mission in 2020 to include the Emerald Choral Academy presenting online courses to amateur singers to help increase their knowledge of the choral craft)

  • Executive Director, Medieval Women’s Choir, and

  • A thriving studio of lifelong voice students, using voice science and pedagogy to teach voice habilitation, artistry and technique to a wide range of experiences, from beginners to professional singers.

We're excited to work with Scott for our upcoming 2022-2023 season! Stay tuned via our Contact page for more details and upcoming events.
