OUR DIRECTOR - Carole Knight

Native Boisean Carole Knight has been making music in the Treasure Valley for pretty much her whole life. She holds two degrees from Boise State University—a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and Theory/Composition, and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance—and she’s put both to good use. As an award-winning, published composer, Carole has had her music and arrangements performed by the BSU Symphonic Winds and many choral ensembles throughout the valley, and in the Temple Square Concert Series in Salt Lake City, Utah. Carole has also sung and soloed with numerous ensembles (Opera Idaho, Boise Master Chorale, and Boise Music Week, to name a few), directed choirs of all ages, worked as a group voice instructor at BSU for several semesters, and taught piano and voice students in her private studio for more than 25 years. Most recently and to her utmost delight, she has been blessed to become the new director of the Boise Choristers.
