JANE RING FRANK is available as a guest conductor, workshop leader, educator, record producer, and consultant to composers, conductors, and scholars who wish to forge connections between music and the wider sphere of cultural life—art, politics, philosophy, religion, and sexuality.

Jane Ring Frank founded Boston Secession in 1996 as a laboratory for modernizing professional vocal performance. Her goal: bringing the audience more deeply into the music. First, Ring Frank helps the audience “hear the music, not the chorus” by creating a uniquely transparent sound, achieved through application of typically orchestral techniques to her ensemble of professional singers.

In addition to her Secession Artistic Director responsibilities, Ring Frank is Conductor of Philovox, publishing house E.C. Schirmer’s resident professional recording chorus. She is a Resident Scholar at the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University, a faculty member at Emerson College, Director of Music at the First Congregational Church in Winchester, and Conductor of the Concord Women’s Chorus, a 50-voice women’s chorus.
