Ithaca College Choir
The Ithaca College Choir, under the direction of Janet Galván, is recognized through its annual tour, performances at ACDA and MENC Conferences and international concerts as one of the most innovative ensembles at the collegiate level. Last spring Choir returned to Alice Tully Hall to sing in an exciting program of contemporary music called "Music of Our Time." The Choir portion of the program was called "Dancing Between Darkness and Light" and featured a premiere of "Let's Dance" by Dominick DiOrio.
The Ithaca College Choir has toured extensively on the East Coast, South and Mid-West United States and in 2002 performed in Ireland. The Choir has presented major concerts at the American Choral Directors Association in Providence, the Music Educators National Conference in Baltimore and Providence; Lincoln Center Avery Fisher Hall and Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Cooper Union in New York City; the Brooklyn Academy of Music in Brooklyn, the Troy Savings Bank in Troy, NY and the Strand Theatre in York, PA. In addition to the a cappella tradition, the choir has performed with the Cayuga Chamber Orchestra, the Ithaca College Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra and Wind Ensemble.
In each of the last thirty-six years, the Ithaca College Choir has premiered a work that premiered at the Ithaca College Composition Festival.
