With Genesis Chamber Singers, she has been featured in the world premieres of many new compositions. Ms. Boardman’s other recent appearances include BEMF Fringe and the St. Tikhon Choir.
She has studied historical performance style as well as Baroque dance and gesture at early music programs including the Early Music Vancouver Baroque Vocal Programme and Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute.
