Assumption Professor Michelle Graveline Recognized for Directing Worcester-based Salisbury Singers

Assumption College Music Professor Michelle Graveline was interviewed for a Nov. 14, 2013, story in the (Worcester) Telegram & Gazette about the Salisbury Singers, a group founded 40 years ago and named after one of Worcester's most historically distinguished families. Professor Graveline has directed the singers since 1998.

On campus, Professor Graveline directs the Assumption College Chorale and the Assumption College Community Chorus. She has led the Chorale on 11 national and international concert tours, performing in Austria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland and Russia. The Chorale has sung in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, and twice in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, where it performed for Pope John Paul II.

A noted harpsichordist and organist, Graveline gave a series of concerts during the 2009-2010 academic year with violinist Peter Sulski, performing the complete sonatas for violin and harpsichord of J.S. Bach, as part of a sabbatical project.
