Sharon Smith

Artistic Director

Stacia Cammarano became the new Artistic Director in the fall of 2020.
Ms. Camm grew up singing in the Seattle Girls Choir which spurred her love of music education. It is the main inspiration behind her career as a choral conductor. She desires to combine her personal connection to a community youth choir and her experience in the public school, stating “I look forward to … providing a similar setting to what I experienced in my own choral upbringing: a community rich with music education, literacy, and a family for students to grow and mature with as they navigate childhood.”
Ms. Camm pursued her love of music education and completed her BA in Choral Music Education from Gonzaga University in 2016 with a minor in Choral Conducting. She is currently working on completing her Masters in Music Education with a choral concentration from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN (summer program). Since 2016, she has been teaching three choral ensembles at Shadle Park High School and holds Kodaly Musicianship certifications in multiple levels.

After more than a decade of exceptional service to the organization, Sharon Smith retired as Artistic Director of Crescendo Community Chorus in the spring of 2020..

We will deeply miss the energy, passion, and dedication that Sharon has brought to Crescendo over the past 13 years. The love she has inspired for choral music will remain in the hearts of those who have been mentored by her dedicated instruction.

As part of our gratitude for all that she did for Crescendo, we have made a 30-minute video of memories using audio recordings of Crescendo's performances over the years. Please take a moment to watch:
