Choral Conducting Faculty
GRAMMY®-nominated conductor James Jordan is recognized and praised around the musical world as one of America’s pre-eminent conductors, writers and innovators in choral music. The most published performer/author in the world, he has written more than 35 books on all aspects of the choral art. He was described as a “visionary” by The Choral Journal, which cited his book Evoking Sound as a “must read.” His books form the canon for the teaching of conductors and choirs around the world.
Joe Miller is conductor of two of America’s most renowned choral ensembles: the Westminster Choir and the Westminster Symphonic Choir. He is also director of choral activities at Westminster Choir College of Rider University. In addition to his responsibilities at Westminster, Dr. Miller is artistic director for choral activities for the renowned Spoleto Festival USA.
As a member of the Westminster Choir College faculty, Dr. Amanda Quist conducts the Westminster Chapel Choir, Westminster Kantorei, and teaches conducting. In February 2014 she was selected to present a workshop titled “Building Sound” with Westminster Kantorei at the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) Eastern Division Conference.
