Director:

Emily Sensenbach-Gopal

 

Emily Sensenbach-Gopal has accompanied the Rutgers Queens Chorale since 2006.  This year, she was privileged to work under the direction of Brenda Earle Stokes, but on Ms. Stokes’ departure in October she agreed to serve as interim director for the remainder of the semester.

Primarily an organist and choral conductor, Ms. Sensenbach-Gopal works in the New Brunswick area, NJ.  She is the music director and organist at St. Paul’s Church (UCC) in Milltown, NJ, directing children’s and adult choirs, playing the organ, and administering the music ministry.  She also serves as sub-dean of the Middlesex Chapter of the American Guild of Organists (AGO).

Ms. Sensenbach-Gopal received her B.A. from Hamilton College and an M.S. in entomology at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.  During these graduate studies, she continued her musical education and employment part-time until deciding to undertake further musical studies.  In 2006, she received a M.M. from Westminster Choir College of Rider University, where she majored in sacred music.

As a church musician, Ms. Sensenbach-Gopal has held organist/choir director positions at St. Luke Lutheran Church (Ithaca, NY) from 2001-2004, Christ Congregation (Princeton, NJ) from 2005-2006, and a number of other churches on an interim or substitute basis. 
From 2006-2010, she conducted the children’s choir of the Chinese-American Music Ensemble (CAME) of NJ.  With her preparation, the children sang in Lincoln Center performances of Leoni’s opera L’Oracolo  and Wolf-Ferrari’s I Gioielli della Madonna.  From 2006-2009, she worked as a theory/enrichment teacher with the Trenton Children’s Chorus, a nonprofit organization seeking to provide musical opportunity for inner city children.
