Instructor in Musiccbotha@hamilton.edu
Charlotte Botha will receive her DMA in choral conducting (music theory as related field) from the University of North Texas, where she served as conductor of the Women’s Chorus and assistant conductor of the University Singers over the past three years.
More recently, Botha worked as assistant conductor of the Dallas Symphony Chorus. Botha’s approach to rehearsal, performance, and group vocal discovery has become permeated by the principles of Choregie and the choral artist’s role in the pursuit of social justice.
Botha’s research interests include the study of choral text-painting and equitable practices for the inclusive programming of music by and for marginalized members of the music community. She looks forward to exploring, nurturing and growing Hamilton College’s choral culture.
