Franklin & Marshall is a liberal arts college of 2,400 students, located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The Franklin & Marshall Chamber Singers showcase the talent of the College’s eighteen best singers. The group performs frequently both on and off-campus, and sings annually with the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra. Under the direction of Dr. William Wright, the Chamber Singers have embarked on twelve east-coast tours, and collaborated with the larger Franklin & Marshall Chorus for over 25 major choral-orchestral works.
This year’s tour repertoire represents a blend of motets, spirituals, madrigals, and contemporary music, including pieces by Giuseppe Pitoni, Tomás Luis de Victoria, Hubert Parry, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Donald Frederick, Jester Hairston, Gary Kent Walth, William Henry Smith, and William Dawson.
Dr. William Wright joined the faculty at Franklin & Marshall College in 2001. He performs as both conductor and pianist, and has appeared in 27 countries of the world. In addition to his work at F&M, Dr. Wright is director of music and arts at Saint James Episcopal Church in Lancaster, associate conductor of the Harvard University Summer School Chorus, chorusmaster for the Lancaster Symphony, and staff conductor for the Pennsylvania Philharmonic.
