Led by Associate Conductor Greg Ritchey, the Palm Beach Opera Chorus is consistently recognized for its artistic excellence.  South Florida Classical Review recently praised the ensemble’s “razor-sharp intonation and glowing, well-blended tones” in this season’s Madama Butterfly, and singled out their precision and “impressive heft” in the critically-acclaimed production of Rigoletto
