“Christopher Fox is a new bright star in the sky of choral arranging for children! His awareness of the child voice, teacher practices, and immense talent for writing beautiful accompaniments and melody is refreshing and inspiring.”

Caroline Crocker, Director of Education/Conductor – Lyric & Treble Choirs, Annandale Campus of the Fairfax Choral Society

The Front is “a developmental piece of choral music that treats the singers like they are good musicians.”

Dr. W. Bryce Hayes, Associate Director of Choral Activities – James Madison University

“Chris Fox is uniquely gifted in his ability to connect with the adolescent singer. His humor, quick wit and warm personality invite students to connect everyday life to the music they are creating. He has a wonderfully creative mind and produces a complete product that connects to the ears, the eyes and the heart.”

Patrick Vaughn, Director of Choruses, Poe MS (Fairfax County Schools), Director of Youth Choruses for The Fairfax Choral Society, and 2015 VA All-State Middle School Choir  Director

“Christopher Fox conducted our Calvert All County Honors High School Chorus, and we could not be more pleased with his work.  Mr. Fox came equipped with extensive knowledge paired with an engaging and motivational teaching and conducting style.  Teachers and students alike have inquired as to when we can invite him back to work with us again.  I would not hesitate to recommend him for any high school choral group for which you are searching for a guest conductor.”

Jessica Valadie, Supervisor of Fine Arts, Calvert County Public Schools, MD

“Sometimes, it is difficult to explain to others the influence that a conductor has on the music itself, but we know that your leadership helped to make this a very special event for one and all.  The All City performance was an absolute success… We appreciate the positive and vital role you played in the Festival weekend, and we look forward to working with you again in the future.”

John H. Brewington, Fine Arts Coordinator, VA Beach Public Schools

“Your skills and expertise in working with this age group combined with your passion for music resulted in an outstanding musical experience for all… From your choice of music, to your vocal warm-ups, through pacing a rehearsal, our specialists were able to observe a master teacher at work.”

Joyce Zsembery, Supervisor of the Arts, Prince William County Public Schools

“I thoroughly enjoyed watching Chris Fox work his magic with the 2012 Anne Arundel County (Maryland) All-County Chorus. In rehearsals, Mr. Fox incorporated a multitude of effective strategies that engaged students in the music-making process. His fast-paced, meticulously planned rehearsals were challenging, yet never without good humor and fun. If it was up to me, Chris Fox would direct the All-County Chorus every year.”

John Floyd Campbell, Chorus Director, Severn River Middle School

“As the conductor of the middle school and high school ensembles, he displayed incredible expertise, musicality, and warm rapport with my students. The parents expressed their gratitude and delight with Mr. Fox’s performance. I would recommend him highly for any future professional endeavors that he may want to pursue hoping that he will come back and share his talents with the students of Anne Arundel County.”

Lydia Gonzales, Manager of Anne Arundel County Choral Camp

“We loved having you work with our middle school chorus!!!!  The students had an awesome musical experience!!  I think I can speak for all the directors in saying that we all were inspired by your work!”

Cynthia Wertz, Elementary Choir Director and All-County Elementary Chair, Central Dauphin School District

“Thank you again for everything!! You really helped make this festival experience amazing!  The students and I learned a lot from you and had so much fun too!  You have wonderful energy and musicianship, which really added to the festival.  I will be sure to share the experience and your name with other local directors.”

Amanda Wertz, Middle School Choir Director, Central Dauphin School District

“Mr. Fox strived to pull the most from each performer, while communicating on a level at which they could understand.  His abundant energy and enthusiasm was infectious, but never clouded the simple fact that he knew what he was doing at an extremely high level.”

Rick Lang, Bassist, University of Mary Washington
