Ithaca College Choir
The Ithaca College Choir, under the direction of Lawrence Doebler, is recognized through its annual tour, performances at ACDA and MENC Conferences and international concerts as one of the finest and most innovative ensembles at the collegiate level. This spring the Choir will present its 35th annual tour with professor Doebler.
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-four years, the Ithaca College Choir has premiered a work that has been published by Theodore Presser as part of the Ithaca College Choral Series.
In professor Doebler’s final season the Choir will perform with the Ithaca College Symphony Orchestra at Lincoln Center Alice Tully Hall April 19, 2013 at 8PM.
