We welcome Anne Lyman as our newest member. She is known to many of us, but I have included a short biography for those who may not have met her. We look forward to her participation in chapter events, and appreciate the expertise that she will bring in choral music.
Dr. Anne E. Lyman serves as Director of Choral Activities and Chair of Music Tacoma Community College. She is Artistic Director of the Sine Nomine Renaissance Choir in Seattle and is Director of Music Ministries at Skyline Presbyterian Church in Tacoma. Dr. Lyman currently also serves as President of the Washington State Chapter of the American Choral Directors Association.
Dr. Lyman has previously conducted choirs at the University of Puget Sound, Pacific Lutheran University, the University of Iowa, and Cornell College, as well as festival and honor choirs throughout the Pacific Northwest. Dr. Lyman holds degrees from The College of Wooster, the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, and the University of Iowa under Timothy Stalter and Christine Getz.
Dr. Lyman’s musical pursuits include early music research and vocal performance. She is the Artistic Director of the Tacoma Early Music Ensemble, which performs polyphony from the 14th through 16th centuries, and also runs the Tacoma Early Music Workshop. In 2007, she completed a nine-month residency in Leuven, Belgium under the auspices of a Fulbright Fellowship, receiving additional recognition for her work by the Society of Seventeenth Century Music, the Belgian American Education Foundation and the Stanley Foundation.
Dr. Lyman loves hiking, cooking, and gardening. She lives in Tacoma, Washington with her husband Zach, son, Milo and daughter, Eleanor.
