Dr. Jeffrey Benson, director
An acclaimed guest conductor and advanced choirs from all over the country come together to create an unforgettable performance filled with musical artistry and visual projections. Audiences have never seen a choral concert like this before. An evening at Carnegie Hall made even more inimitable in this one-time performance of Mozart's Coronation Mass.
ABOUT THE GUEST CONDUCTOR
Jeffrey Benson is currently Director of Choral Activities at San José State University. The Washington Post hails his choirs for singing “with an exquisite blend, subtlety of phrasing, confident musicianship and fully supported tone…that would be the envy of some professional ensembles.”
Dr. Benson recently made his international conducting debut with the Irish Chamber Orchestra and the SJSU Choraliers in Limerick, Ireland, and he made his Carnegie Hall conducting debut in 2015 with the SJSU Choirs and the New York Festival Orchestra. He has served as cover conductor for the Grammy award-winning Washington Chorus, where he helped to prepare the ensemble for Maestros Julian Wachner, Leonard Slatkin and Marvin Hamlisch.
