Andrea Drury, Vocal Music Director for North High School, Trinity United Methodist Church, and accomplished soloist was appointed Conductor of the 125+ member Philharmonic Chorus in July of 2012. Under Mrs. Drury’s direction the chorus continued its refinement of technical skills and continued growth in artistic interpretation. During the 2012-2013 season the Chorus presented its annual Choral Concert, the Pops Mancini Magic and the Classics season finale Verdi Requiem. In the summer of 2015, Chorus members toured Ireland under the direction of Conductor Andrea Drury performing in multiple concerts. The proceeds of these concerts aided fundraising for local charities. An additional impromptu performance took place at the Waterford Crystal Showroom. 2015-2016 the Chorus performed Britton’s War Requiem in the fall, added a holiday performance of Handel’s Messiah at St. John’s Catholic Church in Jasper, Indiana, in February performed Handel’s Elijah and finished the season with Barnett’s The World Beloved: A Blue Grass Mass at the annual Choral Concert. 2016-2017 performed Leonard Bernstein’s Mass, John Rutter’s Gloria and Magnificat by Thomas Drury, an original work composed for Mrs. Drury in honor of her being selected as the Conductor of the EPC. In 2019 it was announced that Mrs. Drury is returning to conduct the chorus once again who is now the EVSC Fine Arts Specialist.
