Description

Mirinesse is Old English for “joyful women”. The singers of Mirinesse Women’s Choir are an auditioned group of approximately sixty women, ages 21-70, who enthusiastically and joyfully share their love of music, and strive to model the highest level of musicianship, artistry and individual vocal ability.

Since 2006, Mirinesse has thrilled audiences in Seattle and around northwest Washington with its beautiful sound and facility with difficult repertoire. Under the direction of co-founders Rebecca Rottsolk and Beth Ann Bonnecroy, Mirinesse prepares one concert program annually. Through its inspiring and engaging performances, Mirinesse introduces audience members to diverse repertoire by composers old and new, performance practice from other times, countries and cultures, and innovative musical techniques. At the same time, Mirinesse exemplifies the beautiful sound of healthy, classically-trained, adult women’s voices. Together, the conductors and singers of Mirinesse strive to create an environment that enlivens the role of women’s choral music in our society, refreshing the spirits and capturing the imaginations of singers and audiences alike.
