John Alexander Singers

Director: John Alexander

 John Alexander Singers

Mixed Choral Ensemble from CA, United States.

Pacific Chorale's professional chamber choir, the John Alexander Singers, is an independently contracted vocal ensemble of 24 singers. While most of these singers also serve as part of the paid core to Pacific Chorale's 140-voice ensemble, their work with the John Alexander Singers focuses on specialized repertoire appropriate for a professional chamber chorus.

Artistic Director of Pacific Chorale since 1972, John Alexander is one of America's most respected choral conductors. His inspired leadership both on the podium and as an advocate for the advancement of the choral art has garnered national and international acclaim throughout a long and distinguished career that has encompassed conducting hundreds of choral and orchestral performances nationally and in 27 countries around the globe. Equally versatile whether on the podium or behind the scenes, Alexander has also prepared choruses for many of the world's most outstanding orchestral conductors, including Zubin Mehta, Pierre Boulez, Seiji Ozawa, Michael Tilson Thomas, Leonard Slatkin, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Lukas Foss, Max Rudolf, Carl St.Clair, Gerard Schwarz, Marin Alsop, John Mauceri, John Williams, and Keith Lockhart.

John Alexander Singers : Shenandoah: Songs of the American Spirit

Review: John Alexander takes the listener on a musical tour of American historical touchstones, celebrating the diverse folk culture of the United States, as well as the emotions and experiences of pioneer life. The John Alexander Singers, one of America's rising professional chamber choirs, captures the essence of the American spirit in this inspirational recording. The history of our country is written in our song, and what a variety of song it is! War songs, tunes from Appalachia, gospel-all have been mined over the years by composers and arrangers of every era. This recording offers a varied program of these American works, from the well known (Shenandoah, Buffalo Gals) to the less familiar, expertly arranged for choir and sung by this nationally acclaimed American choir.

Songlist: Shenandoah, Sourwood Mountain, She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain, Down to the River to Pray, Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child, Johnny Has Gone For a Soldier, Aura Lee, Goober Peas, He's Gone Away, Cindy, Billy Boy, Buffalo Gals, The Erie Canal, Home On The Range, The Colorado Trail, Sacramento ~ Sis Joe, How Can I Keep From Singing
