Louisville Chorus


Brief Biographical Sketch Established in 1939, Louisville Chorus is the longest-thriving most frequently performing choral arts agency in the Commonwealth of KY and neighboring states. Within the realm of other major arts agencies in the area, it exceeds the longevity of opera, ballet, and theatre. The Chorus has filmed two concerts for perpetual broadcast on the world’s largest religious media network EWTN, recorded music for Hollywood movie productions, and released multiple CDs. A member of Chorus America, Louisville Chorus has had its music chosen for broadcast on a nationwide radio series that focused exclusively on the art of choral music. A professional chorus of auditioned singers, Louisville Chorus thrills audiences with a wide repertoire ranging from choral masterworks with orchestra to pops, family-oriented, Broadway, and celebrations of Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Fourth of July, and more. The Chorus offers a very active season of concerts, multimedia events, and outreach programs. It performs with other arts agencies including adult and youth ensembles, and offers concerts for arts series and other events throughout Kentuckiana. Louisville Chorus: honoring the finest in choral traditions—boasting the dynamic direction of Music Director Daniel Spurlock—Enriching lives through the power of music! Brief Historical Sketch In 1939, Fr. Joseph Emrich founded The Holy Name Band & Choral Club, which later became: The Holy Name Choral Club (1968), The Choral Club of Louisville (1972), and finally Louisville Chorus (1987). Joseph Herde succeeded Father Emrich. Richard Spalding, Conductor Emeritus, devoted 20 years to this choral arts agency and made possible the 1985 European Sister Cities Concert Tour. From 1991-2002, Music Director Daniel Spurlock ushered this high-calibre ensemble and its audiences into inspirational, poignant, and emotional musical experiences. In Jan., 2003, Louisville Chorus welcomed Maestro S. Timothy Glasscock as Artistic Director. Therese Davis, Executive Director & Pianist, has collaborated with the music directors since 1969 to ensure high standards and the successful growth and development of the Chorus. Louisville Chorus, since the return of Music Director Daniel Spurlock in June of 2009, continues to maintain its artistic distinction under his dynamic direction!
