Artist in Residence: NOVA | New Orleans Vocal Arts Chorale (NOVA)
NOVA is a group of dedicated choral professionals (singers, teachers, conductors, and students) whose goal is to bring high-quality performances of great choral music to New Orleans, the North Shore, and other area audiences. NOVA was conceived in 1989 by Dr. Raymond Sprague, professor of choral music at UNO, as a chorale which would recruit the area's finest singers to perform great choral music in the New Orleans region. The choir is currently led by Dr. Meg Hulley Frazier of Loyola University.
