"Year in Review"

A concert recording artist, Thévenot is a musical force to be reckoned with wearing many musical hats locally, as music director for St. John's Cathedral, director of the UNM Women's chorus Las Cantantes, and if that is not enough, founder and director of the chorus Polyphony.

A group made up entirely and proudly of New Mexico singers, Polyphony, Voices of New Mexico, has quickly become the area's premiere chamber chorus in no small part due to Thévenot's direction. As a conductor, Thévenot knows exactly what she wants and precisely how to get it from the performers. And she does it with deceptively minimal effort. The group has just issued their first CD, a selection of season music, Winter: An Evocation.
