Patricia Denmark is the founder and director of Cantemus Women’s Choir, an areawide community choir, and she is in her 18th year as the music director of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church.

She is a graduate of Texas A&M University and East Texas Baptist University. Her future goals include attending the Westminster Choir College Summer Conducting Institute, the Choral Institute at Oxford, and one day completing her Master of Music in Choral Conducting at Simpson College’s summer master’s program.

Denmark is an active singer, conductor and educator in East Tennessee. She also serves as the assistant director for the Dobyns-Bennett High School Choral Department. Her duties at Dobyns-Bennett include vocal and diction coaching, co-conducting the choirs and directing the award-winning Duly Noted, an all female a cappella group.

She has performed in a variety of community, church, school and professional choruses throughout her career. She is honored to have sung and learned tricks of the trade under the batons of Robert Shaw, John Rutter, Gerre Hancock, André Previn, Malcolm Archer, Lara Hoggard and Helmuth Rilling, and she strongly believes that her success as a choral conductor comes from more than 35 years of continuous membership as a singer in a choir.
