Our Staff. Herding cats.
Keeping all of these men together and on task is an impossible task, but the staff of Steel City Men’s Chorus still tries.
A Chorus Manager handles the business and administration of the chorus while a creative team consisting of an Artistic Director and an Associate Music Director, are responsible for the theme and production of our performances.
