After an exhaustive six-month search, Nicole Belmont a New York-based business and choral executive, has been selected as the Grammy Award® winning Phoenix Chorale’s newest Executive Director.
“Choral music for me is the magical meeting of voices and space. Whether you encounter it in a lofty cathedral, or a resonant unconventional space, it’s an art-form that cannot help but to move the listener. Through languages known or unknown, composers both ancient and contemporary have spoken to the human condition through music, and they allow us to explore our personal and collective thoughts, beliefs and emotions in a truly healthy way. It is my utter passion to bring people closer to this transformative art-form and to hold up the people who make it and shape it.”Nicole Belmont
Belmont brings great passion and understanding of choral music to the Chorale, as well as a full suite of professional business development, marketing strategy and creative skills which she utilized to generate significant growth of the innovative choral organization, Choral Chameleon, based in New York City. As Executive Director, she facilitated the evolution of the choral concert experience, drawing new audiences via production innovations, front of house ambience, and engaging and diverse content to showcase the work of a wide array of composers, styles and collaborators from other disciplines.
Active in the US choral community, Belmont is a member of Chorus America, ACDA an Artist Fellow of the National Arts Club, and was a member of Chorus America’s Advanced Management Institute for Professional Choruses in 2020. She has a BA in Politics, Philosophy & Economics from Oxford University. As a soprano, she has been performing with the 150-member masterworks choir The Choral Society of Grace Church and with Choral Chameleon’s 50-member semi-professional Chorus.
