Andrew Clark
conductor

An advocate for the music of our time, Andrew Clark has commissioned numerous composers, conducting important contemporary and rarely heard pieces as well as regular performances of choral-orchestral masterworks. He leads the Holden Choral Program at Harvard University, which includes nearly 500 singers and six faculty-directed choruses, and serves as conductor of the Radcliffe Choral Society, the Harvard Glee Club, and the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum. He also teaches courses in conducting and music theory.

Prior to his appointment at Harvard, Mr. Clark was Director of Choral Activities at Tufts University, and previously served as Music Director of the Worcester Chorus, Chorus Master and Assistant Conductor of Opera Boston, Associate Conductor of the Boston Pops Esplanade Chorus, and Assistant Conductor of the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, the chorus of the Pittsburgh Symphony.

Mr. Clark is also Artistic Director of the Providence Singers, an award-winning choral arts organization earning critical praise for compelling and innovative concerts, dynamic community engagement programs, and distinctive organizational partnerships. He conducted the Providence Singers and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project in two critically acclaimed commercial recordings of seminal and neglected American works: Lukas Foss's cantata, The Prairie, and Dominick Argento's oratorio, Jonah and the Whale. In 2007, the Providence Singers was selected from a national pool to produce one of seven National Endowment for the Arts "American Masterpieces: Choral Music" festivals.

Mr. Clark has led ensembles in prominent venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Cath├ędrale Notre Dame de Paris, Stephansdom in Vienna, Boston's Symphony Hall, Mechanics Hall, and throughout Europe and North America. He has collaborated with the Pittsburgh and New Haven Symphonies, the Rhode Island Philharmonic, the Kronos Quartet, and the Dave Brubeck Quartet, among others, and has performed on NBC's "Today" show.

He holds degrees from Wake Forest and Carnegie Mellon Universities, having studied with Grammy Award-winning conductor Robert Page, and is completing doctoral coursework at Boston University with Professor Ann Howard Jones. He has been recognized by Chorus America as one of our country's most promising conductors and is a member of the national music honor society Pi Kappa Lambda.

[News Coverage] Jonah and the Whale Preview
The Providence Singers continue their quest to bring forgotten choral works by American masters to the stage with a performance this weekend of Dominick Argento's Jonah and the Whale, an eclectic concoction that blends fugues, hymns and sea chanteys with a text that spans many centuries. Performances at Blessed Sacrament Church on Academy Avenue are slated for tomorrow night and Sunday afternoon, as part of the ongoing FirstWorks Festival.
