The Heart of New Jersey Chorus is happy to present its Director, Jeanne Elmuccio. Jeanne began her direction duties in September, 2015.
Jeanne is a graduate of the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, a Sweet Adelines International Certified Director, has served as Assistant Director of two New Jersey Sweet Adelines choruses and as director of Brooklyn Chorus. Jeanne is also a musical arranger who serves as a faculty member for the Greater NY/NJ Region 15 of Sweet Adelines, and participates in the regional arranging program.
In addition, Jeanne sings tenor with Liberty Oak Chorus and has sung with many barbershop quartets. She is the Director of Music Ministry at Calvary Lutheran Church, Cranford, NJ, holds a NJ teacher certificate in Music and Science, and directs a seasonal community choir at her workplace.
The Chorus is immensely proud of Jeanne's achievements so far with the chorus. In 2016, she was awarded the Novice Director's award at the Greater New York/New Jersey Region 15 Annual Convention. In 2017, Jeanne received the prestigious Harriette Walters Leadership Award recognizing her dedication to ongoing growth, good ideas, discipline, and willingness to motivate and inspire. This award is given to one person in Greater NY/NJ Region 15 each year and we couldn't be happier that Jeanne was chosen unanimously.
