“As always, the Westminster Symphonic Choir, directed by Joe Miller, sang with robust sound and confidence.”

       --The New York Times

Joe Miller, conductor

Recognized as one of the world’s leading choral ensembles, the Westminster Symphonic Choir has recorded and performed with major orchestras under virtually every internationally acclaimed conductor of the past 82 years. The ensemble is composed of juniors, seniors and graduate students at Westminster Choir College.

The ensemble’s 2015-2016 season includes performances of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and Jacques Lacombe and with the Berliner Philharmoniker conducted by Simon Rattle, and Handel’s Messiah with the New York Philharmonic conducted by Jane Glover and Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 with The Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Recent seasons have included performances of Verdi's Requiem with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin; Berg's Wozzeck with the London Philharmonia and Esa-Pekka Salonen; Villa-Lobos' Choros No. 10 and Estévez’ Cantata Criolla with the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela and Gustavo Dudamel; Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and Daniel Barenboim and Rouse’s Requiem with the New York Philharmonic and Alan Gilbert.
