New Music and Intermezzo Chamber
Opera. She is a founding member of the Lorelei Ensemble, which promotes new
music for women.Ensemble Emily holds degrees from Central Michigan
University and Boston University.
James Busby, a familiar figure in the musical life of New England, is in
demand as a vocal coach, collaborative pianist, and organist throughout the
Northeast. A native of Jacksonville, Florida, and an alumnus of New England
Conservatory, he has recently been awarded the degree of Doctor of Music by
Nashotah House Theological Seminary for "faithful commitment to excellence
in sacred music". James studied piano with Julius Chaloff and Kyriena Siloti
and organ with George Faxon and Max Miller. He later studied with noted
vocal coaches Felix Wolfes, Olga Averino and conductor John Moriarty. In
addition to accompanying some of Boston’s finest voices, James is organist
and choirmaster of S. Stephen’s Church in Providence, Rhode Island, located
in the heart of the Brown University Campus, a post he has held since 1993.
