Loren Ponten

Loren Ponten, Founder & Artistic Director of Opus 7 Vocal Ensemble, has been an active conductor in the Pacific Northwest for over 25 years. A champion of contemporary choral music, he and Opus 7 have commissioned over 25 new choral works, premiered countless works from around the world, the United States, and the Pacific Northwest and Seattle, as well as consistently included time-honored traditional repertoire in their programs.

Passionate about chamber choral music, Ponten formed Opus 7 in 1992 with 7 singers in order to perform a wide-range of music from madrigals to motets and jazz. Soon after founding the group, Ponten turned the group's focus to the performance of choral works by Northwest composers, and in 2000 instituted an annual Student Choral Composition Awards Program to encourage young composers to create new choral works and to contribute to the expansion of the choral repertoire.
