Our Director: Mary Hamilton
Mary Hamilton served as Assistant Director for the Sunnyvale Singers for a year before becoming our seventh director in the Fall of 2013. Mary has been singing all her life including in high school and college choirs, community choirs, and caroling groups. She has always loved music and discovered the exquisite beauty of choral music at a young age, but figured out that she wanted to make music her life work about 15 years ago. Mary has a Bachelor’s degree in Earth Sciences from Stanford University and a Bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance, Music Education, and a Teaching Credential from San Jose State University.
Mary has accompanied choirs and toured in Europe with her children for 10 years with the Cantabile Youth Singers, founded by Signe Boyer. She also sang on tour in Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic in 2010 with the SJSU singers directed by Dr. Amanda Quist. Mary sings in a local chamber choir, Collage Vocal Ensemble, teaches chorus to middle school students in Los Altos, and lives in Mountain View with her husband and cat.
