The Music Director of CODA Chorus


Originally from Evian, France, Joëlle Morris is a singer, choral conductor, music educator and voice teacher living in central Maine.

Recognized for her warm mezzo voice and her ability to sparkle on stage, she is admired for her versatility, from the concert stage to the operatic arena, in intimate jazz settings and French cabaret or simply sharing her gifts as voice teacher and coach.

Since relocating to Maine in 2011, Joëlle has appeared with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, the Mozart Mentor Orchestra and regularly gives recitals at the Franco Center, Waterville Opera House, Colby College, Bates College, Nordica Auditorium and the Early Music Festival in Portland.

In 2013, Joëlle was featured on the “207” show on WCHS Channel 6 to highlight the release of her new Christmas album “C’est Noël!” with pianist Bridget Convey. In 2016, her association with pianist Bridget Convey and cellist Eliza Meyer has resulted in the creation of the Resinosa Ensemble, specializing in 21st century and commissioned works.

Joëlle has taught voice and vocal pedagogy since 2003 both in France and in the United States. In addition to annual summer appearances in France, she is currently a Music Associate in Voice at Colby College, teaches privately in Winthrop, ME at the Joëlle Morris Voice Studio, and is proud to lead the CODA Chorus in its 50th season!
