".... full-bodied singing from the impressive Westminster Symphonic Choir."
--The New York Times
Steve Pilkington, 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 86 years. The ensemble is composed of juniors, seniors and graduate students at Westminster Choir College.
