A native of Chatham, Ontario, Sara Brooks is active throughout Canada as conductor, choral clinician, collaborative pianist, and teacher. With degrees in piano performance from Acadia University (BMus) and the University of Ottawa (MMus), she has recently completed her DMus in choral conducting from the University of Alberta. During her time in Edmonton Sara has conducted numerous notable ensembles, including the University of Alberta Madrigal Singers, the Richard Eaton Singers, and Pro Coro Canada, and currently works as guest conductor of the Joyful Noise Association, as well as co-conductor of the Edmonton Metropolitan Chamber Choir. She is also active vocally, singing as a core member of Pro Coro Canada. Sara is frequently called upon to serve as guest conductor, vocal clinician, and soloist with a variety of ensembles in the Edmonton area.

Sara’s Canadian travels have allowed her to work with a number of vocal ensembles including the Vancouver Chamber Choir and Voces boreales (Montreal, QC). While living in Ottawa (2008-2012), Sara founded and directed the Capital Chamber Choir, a 24-voice chamber ensemble, whose mandate is to promote Canadian Choral repertoire. This ensemble now continues with a new director in its fifth season. Sara also has experience in opera chorus direction, having worked with both Edmonton Opera and Opera Lyra Ottawa.

Sara’s musical studies in Chatham included piano with Andrea Battista and both piano and theory with Beth Conliffe. She also spent several years singing with the Youth Voices of Kent under the direction of Janet Wake.

Sara currently works as sessional instructor at the University of Alberta where she teaches undergraduate choral conducting and pedagogy. She is frequently called upon to adjudicate at local festivals and has presented her doctoral research at conferences across Canada. Her present area of research is the relationship between gender and gesture as it relates to choral conducting.
