Emily Ball and her husband, Brad, are the parents of four children. Emily is currently the Youth Choirs Conductor’s Assistant for Utah Millennial® Choirs & Orchestras (UMCO). She began her association with MCO as a vocalist in UMCO’s Grand Chorus, where she has participated for several years.
As a music student at Chapman University, Emily sang under the direction of the renowned director/composer Dr. William Hall. She received her bachelor degree in vocal studies from Brigham Young University–Hawaii. Following graduation she became the vocal coach for the award-winning Fountain Valley High School choral program under the direction of Brett Stewart. During this time Emily created the curriculum and programs for hundreds of students in the after-school group voice classes. She then went on to teach choir at The Waterford School in Sandy, Utah. Because family is very important to Emily, she decided to take a break from working full-time to have more children. However, she still kept her association with Waterford part-time as a sectional coach and teaching private voice lessons. At various times since then she has had a voice studio both in California and Utah.
Emily would like to thank her mentors William Hall, Christina Dahlin, Vicki Gorman, Ted Reid, Merrilee Webb, and James Smith. She is thrilled to be back in the music world and working with the youth of UMCO.
