Comments from recent Columbia Encore Singer Survey:

  • Stephen is the best! I actually get a voice lesson from him as well as the choral experience.
  • I learned a great deal about singing. I think Stephen is a terrific teacher and conductor.
  • Direction by Stephen, superb. Rehearsals, nonjudgmental but pointedly serious.
  • Especially loved Stephen Harouff's direction and teaching. He isa gem!
