The West Village Chorale is thrilled to announce the appointment of Dr. Colin Britt as Artistic Director and Conductor, beginning with the 2016-17 season.
Originally from Maine, Colin holds a bachelor’s degree in music composition from the Hartt School, a master’s degree in choral conducting from the Yale School of Music, and a doctorate in choral conducting from Rutgers University.
He has conducted the Rutgers University Choir, the Hartford Chorale Chamber Singers, the Hartt Choir and Camerata, and has sung and conducted with C4 (The Choral Composer-Conductor Collective).
Colin’s compositions have been performed by ensembles at Rutgers, Westminster Choir College, Hartt, Yale, and throughout the country, including Seraphic Fire, the Yale Schola Cantorum, the Yale Alumni Chorus, C4, VOCE, and the Riverside Choral Society, and by ensembles across the country and on four continents.
In addition to conducting the West Village Chorale, Colin currently serves as music director for Grace Church Van Vorst in Jersey City, and directs Amuse in New York and North River Sing in Jersey City. In Fall 2016, he will serve on the conducting faculty at SUNY New Paltz.
We are looking forward to starting our upcoming season with Colin at the podium! More information on this season will be available in the coming weeks.
