(1985) Anything Goes Chorus I and II Director. Ellen Robinson is a true pied piper of singing. One of the San Francisco Bay Area’s busiest music directors, she has helped take many a vocalist from the level of simply wanting to sing to the stage. She has sung folk, rock, Broadway, a cappella, jazz and is notable for guiding vocalists toward mastery of nearly any genre of song.
Ellen is definitely at home as a jazz vocalist and performer herself with a bevy of concerts at major venues (Yoshi’s, Freight and Salvage) as well as recording and producing her own jazz CDs. Ellen founded (1980) and directs the Anything Goes Chorus. She also teaches jazz singing at The California Jazz Conservatory and is a vocal coach for musical theater classes at Stagebridge, the nation’s oldest senior theatre company. She received a Bachelor of Music from Ithaca College, completed graduate studies at Bank Street College of Education, SUNY-Stony Brook, Hofstra University and C.W. Post, and is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing.
