Lynne Wilkinson, Director (508) 747-0212
Lynne Wilkinson embarked on her musical career at the young age of 4 when she joined the Children’s Choir at the Episcopal Church in her Connecticut home town. She also began taking piano lessons that year. Singing was the norm in her home as both of her parents sang in choruses, often rehearsing in her home. Music was a very important part of Lynne’s high school experience during which time she both sang in and accompanied various choral groups. She went on to study piano and voice at the University of New Hampshire. She continued the study of voice at Temple University and the New England Conservatory of Music. While living in Philadelphia she sang with The Philadelphia Singers, Singing City and the Germantown Oratorio Choir. Returning to Boston she sang with A New Voice, the Commonwealth Singers and with the Boston Cecilia for 34 years, learning techniques of choral conducting and choral singing under the tutelage of the late Donald Teeters.
Wilkinson performed with and was music director of The New English Song and Daunce Companie and was co-creator of the musical ensemble, Ayriel which performed throughout New England. She was the Music Director at First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Plymouth for 26 years. Fulfilling a dream of hers, she founded Persephone’s Daughters in 2000. In 2012 she created the Cranberry Hospice Choir which she continues to direct.
