Musica was founded in January 1990 by a group of 8 singers who had sung together at a Christmas party and wanted to find a way to continue to do so. Initially, all music and artistic matters were conducted by group consensus, but the rehearsal-by-committee process quickly proved inefficient. They invited Dr. John Leman of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music to conduct the group, making him Musica’s first Artistic Director in 1993.
Dr. Robert Jones filled the Artistic Director role in the spring of 1999. Under his leadership, Musica recorded two CD’s, and expanded the profile of the group through a series of extra performances statewide, including a performance at the Ohio Choral Directors Association annual conference. Bob continued as Artistic Director until the end of the 2010-2011 season.
Dr. Adam Con joined us as Artistic Director for the 2012-2013 season. Ushering in swift and sweeping changes, Dr. Con enhanced the sound and performance level of the group, highlighted in a 6-concert series of performances with the United States Air Force Band of Flight.
For the 2013-2014 season, Musica welcomes Michael Fuchs as our new Artistic Director.
