CA’s New Choral Director Tai Oney is a World-Class Musician Who’s Serious about Teaching

January 07, 2019

A charismatic opera singer and Boston University graduate student, Tai Oney became CA’s choral director in September 2018. It’s a role that represents a change for the award-winning countertenor, who has performed around the world and spent much of the last decade based in London. But it’s a role that allows him to combine his own artistic pursuits with his desire to give to others what a dynamic teacher once provided him.
