Founded in 1948 by Dr. Wiley Housewright, the University Singers is the premier undergraduate auditioned choir at Florida State University. The choir is composed of undergraduate students including those majoring in music and the other degree programs offered by the many academic units making up The Florida State University. During its rich history, the University Singers has performed with such remarkable musicians as Sir David Willcocks (2002), Aaron Copland, Norman Dello Joio, Billy Taylor (2000), and the esteemed Atlanta Symphony Conductor Robert Shaw, who continued to conduct concerts with the University Singers into his eighties. Additionally, during the past five years, the University Singers has been invited to perform national and regional conventions of the Music Educators National Conference and the American Choral Directors Association.
Throughout its seventy year history, several distinguished conductors have lead the University Singers, including Walter James, Joseph Flummerfelt, Clayton Krehbiel and André Thomas. Today, the traditions founded by these outstanding conductors has been passed to the current conductor, Kevin Fenton.
