Westminster Symphonic Choir

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 80 years. The ensemble is composed of juniors, seniors and graduate students at Westminster Choir College.

The choir’s 2014-2015 season includes Carmina Burana with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and Jacques Lacombe, three series of performances with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin: Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection,” J. S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, and Leonard Bernstein’s Mass.  The ensemble will also perform Johannes Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem with the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Daniele Gatti.

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.
