She is also Conducting Associate to the Dallas Symphony Chorus, for which her work as chorusmaster was praised as “exemplary and well-prepared” (Texas Classical Review).
From 2009-2016, Lindsay served as Director of Choral Ensembles and Lecturer in Music at Mount Holyoke College, where she conducted the Glee Club, Chorale, and Chamber Singers, and taught undergraduate conducting. Under her direction, the ensembles participated in tours in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and New Orleans, released a commercial CD, and performed at the American Choral Directors Association’s 2016 Eastern Division Conference. Lindsay was also active as Reading and Standards Chair for Women’s Choirs for the Massachusetts branch of ACDA, and appeared as a choral clinician for area children’s choruses and district choirs in Massachusetts and New York. Lindsay is passionate about exposing her students to choral music from a variety of genres, eras, and particularly cultures. She has traveled to Corsica and the Republic of Georgia with Village Harmony to study and perform traditional folk songs and chant.
Lindsay is a frequent soloist with UNT Collegium and Baroque Orchestra, most recently as alto soloist for Bach’s St. John Passion. In June she represented UNT in a chamber ensemble at the Boston Early Music Festival. She is a founding member of Polyphonia, a 5-voice early music ensemble specializing in one-on-a-part singing of medieval and Renaissance repertoire.
Lindsay completed her Masters at Westminster Choir College. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Music from Mount Holyoke College, where she directed and sang in the V-8s, the oldest continuing female a cappella group.
