Melodie Galloway

Melodie G. Galloway holds the Master’s degree from Florida State University in Vocal Performance and the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in conducting from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Her experience as a conductor and soprano soloist includes opera, music theatre, and a professional vocal ensemble, where she has been a soloist in Russia, Estonia, Ireland, England, Spain, as well as extensively throughout the United States.

Currently Dr. Galloway is an Assistant Professor in music at the University of North Carolina – Asheville, where she is the Director of Choral and Vocal Studies. Among the multiple choirs she leads, the UNCA Chamber Singers, an auditioned advanced ensemble has performed under her direction for the Holiday Open House Celebrations at the White House and for the Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Hospital for the past five seasons (2007-2011).

Dr. Galloway is the Director of the Lake Junaluska Singers, a 16-voice, professional ensemble that serves as the Ambassador choir for the Southeastern United Methodist Jurisdiction. Under Galloway’s direction since 2010, the Singers have been invited to sing for the United Methodist General Conference in Tampa, FL, May 2012, National ACDA, Dallas, March 2013, and recorded 2 professional CDs and 2 DVDs in a multi-camera studio in Orlando, FL. Executive Director, Dr. Jack Ewing, says “The Singers have a phenomenal sound with pure, close harmonies, that truly set them apart as a vocal group- they bring tears every time I hear them sing, and I wouldn’t miss a performance.”

In 2011, Dr. Galloway was appointed the Musical Director/Conductor for the Asheville Choral Society. This large choir is made up of 118 auditioned singers from around the Asheville region. The chorus performs four major concerts each season, presenting major works and modern, contemporary choral compositions, often with full symphonic orchestra and professional soloists. The Asheville Choral Society is widely recognized for its eclectic repertoire and beautiful choral sound.“Powerful music, remarkable voices….” Asheville Citizen-Times.

Dr. Galloway is in demand as a clinician and conference contributor in fields of choral repertoire and technique, musical theatre and jazz. As an invited speaker in March, 2007, Galloway gave Coloring Outside the Lines:Conflicts and Resolutions in Dave Brubeck’s “Jazzy” Mass presented as part of the Leeds College of Music International Jazz Conference “Jazz: Inside and Outside.”
