Choral Experience

Darcy has been performing in choral settings from the age of 10. As a middle school student, she sang with the SCVA Junior High Honor Choir in 1994, in addition to singing for eight years in various school choirs under the direction of Carole Kaiser and Thea Kano. As an undergraduate at Corpus Christi College, Oxford she sang in the college chapel choir for four years (with organ scholars Simon Kirk, John Gull, and Tom West).

She has sung with three groups at UC Berkeley: the UC Chamber Chorus and the University Chorus, under the direction of Marika Kuzma (and a number of guest conductors: Paul Flight, Matt Oltman, Ian Kirk, and John Kendall Bailey), and Perfect Fifth, a small madrigal and early music group directed by Mark Sumner.

She has also sung with the Haydn Singers under the direction of Paul Flight.

If you need to hire an alto sub for a Sunday church job in the Bay Area, please feel free to contact me at (Churches in the Bay Area which I have sung at include Notre Dame des Victoires, Church of the Advent of Christ the King, and St Thomas Church in San Francisco, and St Paul's Episcopal Church in Burlingame.) I am also the alto soloist for High Holy Days at Rodef Shalom in San Rafael.
