Vocal Confluence has named Ryan Perrotte as our next Artistic Director.

Ryan is president and co-founder of In Tune With the Arts Studios, Inc. in Gibsonia, PA. He is also the department head of the middle school and high school music departments at Peters Township School District, as well as the Director of Choral Studies at Peters Township High School in McMurray, PA. Ryan is known for his wide range of styles in his choral teaching that consists of barbershop, sacred, secular, contemporary a cappella, jazz, and musical theatre.

He directed Rowdy Rhythm, the full ensemble choir at Peters Township HS, in a performance of Wayne Grimmer’s "Camptown Races" at the Saturday Night Spectacular at the 2015 International Barbershop Competition in Pittsburgh. His group was also invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York with Deke Sharon (Vocal Producer of The Sing Off and Pitch Perfect movies) for Total Vocal II in the spring of 2016. He has coached many high school barbershop quartets, one of which was the only high school quartet to place in the top 5 at the Sweet Adelines International “Rising Star” Competition.

In addition, he has sung with several barbershop quartets, one of which placed 3rd in the National Collegiate Barbershop Competition.

Ryan is "honored and humbled to become the Artistic Director of a men's chorus whose vision is to create the highest level in vocal music production, while exploring eclectic styles of repertoire such as barbershop, contemporary a cappella, and traditional choral music."

Please join us in congratulating Ryan!
