Ms. Fanslow has been a lover of choral music her entire life. At age 10 she decided her dream job would be to conduct a community choir, and she has been pursuing that dream ever since. Ms. Fanslow holds a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and a Master of Music in Conducting, both from the University of Denver's Lamont School of music.

She studied conducting under Dr. Catherine Sailer, and has taken lessons with Dr. Lawrence Golan of the University of Denver, Dr. Joe Martin of the University of Denver, and Richard Larson of Kantorei. She has participated in conducting workshops with Dr. Janet Galvan of Ithaca College, Dr. Dirk Garner of Baldwin Wallace College, Dr. Mitos Andaya of the University of Georgia, and Dr. Joe Miller of the Westminster Choir College.

Ms. Fanslow strongly believes in the power that exists and the good that can be done when a community comes together to make music. She believes that a choir is a wonderful way to create community and bring joy to people's lives. She loves to be a part of a group filled with people from all walks of life who come together to work for one common goal - great music!

Arielle Wilson, Pianist

Ms. Wilson began playing the piano at the age of 3. Coached by her mother, Ms. Wilson trained through high school as a classical soloist. As a piano major under the tutelage of Professor Theodore Lichtmann at the University of Denver's Lamont School of Music, Ms. Wilson discovered her passion for collaborative piano playing. Now, she enjoys cultivating a supportive relationship with other musicians and thrives on the camaraderie and synergy created within a group of performers.

Ms. Wilson is actively involved in music and education; the full-time accompanist for Campus Middle School in the Cherry Creek School District, Arielle has the opportunity to provide an inclusive and nurturing environment for the next generation of musicians. Furthermore, she routinely performs with the Denver Concert Band and the Lone Tree Symphony Orchestra. In addition to her collaborative piano projects, Ms. Wilson has a private piano studio, performs as a soloist in the Metro area, and serves as a church organist and pianist for Brentwood United Methodist Church in West Denver.
