Brad Dumont is a passionate arts advocate working to create and support unique artistic projects that contribute to cultural improvement and community-based arts education. He believes in the power of choral singing to build empathetic communities — providing a voice for those that may otherwise not be heard. Brad is committed to a process-oriented approach of music-making which allows for singers to explore diverse themes of equity and justice, a process which helps singers more clearly and creatively communicate their stories.
Brad serves as the Director of Choral Activities at Assumption University and as the Music Director of the Salisbury Singers in Worcester, MA. Additionally, Brad serves as the vice president of the New Hampshire Master Chorale and on the artistic planning team for the Boston-based choir VOICES 21C where he helps develop creative staging and narrative driven programs. Brad is also the operations manager for Emmanuel Music in Boston, an orchestra contractor for ensembles throughout New England, and vice chair of the Greater Boston Choral Consortium.
Brad received a Master of Music in Choral Conducting at Boston University studying with Dr. Miguel Felipe and Bramwell Tovey where he served on the Arts Leadership Council and held teaching assistantships in choral ensembles, conducting, and arts incubation. Originally from Rochester, NH; Brad graduated from Plymouth State University in 2013 as the outstanding Graduating Senior in Music and a Top 20 Senior, earning a B.S. in Music Education K-12 and a B.A. in Music: Vocal Performance and Pedagogy while studying voice with Dr. Kathleen Arecchi, piano with Dr. Carleen Graff, and receiving a choral fellowship from Dr. Dan Perkins.
