University of Louisville Cardinal Singers

Director: Kent Hatteberg

 University of Louisville Cardinal Singers

Mixed Choral Chorus from Louisville, KY, United States.

The University of Louisville Cardinal Singers, a select chamber choir in the School of Music, were founded in 1970 under the name "University Singers" by the late William C. Lathon, former University of Louisville professor, as an outreach organization for the University. In 1980 they were appointed by then Governor Brown as Commonwealth of Kentucky "ambassadors of good will." Mr. Lathon conducted the University Singers until 1991, when Shirley Wilkinson took over leadership of the ensemble. Dr. Hatteberg became conductor of the Singers in 1997, and changed the name in 1998 to "Cardinal Singers."

The outreach mission of the Cardinal Singers continues as a focus today, and the Singers have made numerous appearances locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, performing at community functions, official University gatherings, choral conventions, serving as a demonstration choir, and competing on the international stage. Through performances at events such as the 7 th World Symposium on Choral Music in Kyoto, Japan, the Marktoberdorf Chamber Choir Competition in Germany, and the International Choir Olympics, the Cardinal Singers have developed a remarkable international reputation.

The Cardinal Singers rehearse twice a week as a credit, non-required course. The ensemble is open to all students, and members are expected to have advanced sight-reading skills and vocal abilities.

University of Louisville Cardinal Singers : A Time To Cherish

Review: "A Time to Cherish is a lovely a cappella Christmas collection from The University of Louisville (KY), Cardinal Singers, which was founded in 1970. The 45-strong, mixed-voice ensemble has gained a reputation for excellence under Dr. Hatteburg, from International competitions in Europe, symposiums in Japan, to ACDA Conventions in the US. There are 22 finely-crafted songs here, from traditional carols like "Ding Dong! Merrily on High," "Carol of the Bells," "Angels from the Realms of Glory," "Away in a Manger," "I Saw Three Ships," "Coventry Carol," "Deck the Hall" and "Joy to the World" to less familiar material, Herbert Howells' "A Spotless Rose," Arvo Part's "Bogoroditse Djevo," Elizabeth Poston's "Jesus Christ the Apple Tree," Juris Vaivods' Ti Divam Duorgi Laiki," Frank Martin's "Sanctus," Ralph Vauhan Williams' "The Blessed Son," and the Paul Brandvik-arranged "Lulajze, Jezuniu."
