Joseph Flummerfelt

Biography

Born: February 24, 1937; Vincennes, IN  
Joseph Flummerfelt's choral conducting career has traced a steady yet meteoric trajectory: for over 25 years, his performances have been well known across the world's most prestigious concert halls and in over 35 recordings on 12 different labels. Flummerfelt attended DePauw University for his first studies in organ and church music, graduating in 1958. He followed this with a master's degree in choral conducting from the Philadelphia Read more Conservatory of Music (1962) and a doctorate from the University of Illinois (1971); he also studied under Nadia Boulanger, Julius Herford, and Elaine Brown. In addition to serving for 23 years as maestro di coro for the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy, Flummerfelt has been director of choral activities for the American spin-off Spoleto USA in Charleston, SC, since 1977. He made his conducting debut with the New York Philharmonic in 1988 and serves as chorusmaster for that ensemble. He has also founded and continues to direct the New York Choral Artists. He taught at the University of Illinois (1963-1964), DePauw University (1964-1968), and Florida State University (1968-1971), before joining the faculty at Westminster Choir College (beginning in 1971). Among his many awards are the French Prix du Président de la République, two Grammy nominations, and four honorary doctorates. Read less
