My Shepherd Will Supply
The Florida State University Chamber Choir With the growth of the graduate program at Florida State University, it became necessary to create a graduate choral ensemble. Joseph Flummerfelt founded the Chamber Choir during his tenure at Florida State University (1968-1971) to begin to meet that need. The Graduate Chamber Choir is a select group of singers performing repertoire particularly suitable for a 24-42 -voice mixed choir, both accompanied and a cappella. The chorus has performed at both the Regional and National Conventions of MENC (Music Educators' National Conference) and Regional Convention of ACDA (American Choral Directors' Association). The Choir has been privileged to perform the music of Morton Gould, Jacob Druckman, Harold Schiffman, John Boda, and Salvador Brotons during the residencies of each of those composers. It has collaborated in performances with Sir David Willcocks, Robert Shaw, Billy Taylor, Bobby McFerrin, Nicholas Harsanyi, Thomas Hilbish, Frank Almond, Maurice Hayes, Harold Decker, and Anton Armstrong. Throughout it's thirty-eight year existence, it has had four principal conductors. Those conductors include Joseph Flummerfelt, Clayton Krehbiel, Rodney Eichenberger, and it's current conductor André Thomas.
