Temple University Concert Choir

The Temple University Concert Choir has enjoyed a regional and national reputation for excellence and versatility. The choir, comprised of undergraduate and graduate students, makes its home at the Boyer College of Music and Dance at Temple University. In addition to performing the great masterworks of the choral and choral/orchestral canon, the choir is committed to the performance of new American choral music and has presented many first Philadelphia performances including Robert Moran's Hagoromo, Alfred Schnittke's Requiem, and Arvo Pärt's Passio Nostri Jesu Christi Secundum Joannem.

The Concert Choir has been Temple's choral ambassador in the United States and abroad. Under the direction of Alan Harler, the ensemble earned invitations to perform at the National and Eastern Division conferences of the American Choral Directors Association in 1995, 2000, 2004, and 2008, and the inaugural conference of the National Collegiate Choral Organization in 2006. It has performed across the United States as well as China, Hong Kong, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico, and has sung for some of the world's great conductors, including Eugene Ormandy, Riccardo Muti, Leopold Stokowski, Klaus Tennstedt, Zubin Mehta, Carlo Maria Giulini, Krzysztof Penderecki and Hellmuth Rilling.

The choir has performed under the distinctive leadership of Elaine Brown, Robert Page, and Alan Harler, and since 2011 has been conducted by Paul Rardin.
