Presenting a Bach Cantata (with singers)
Timothy Snyder is Director of Choral Activities and Assistant Professor of Music at Jacksonville University where he directs the University Singers, Men's and Women's Choirs, and teaches courses in choral arranging, literature, choral methods and music history. Dr. Snyder comes to JU from Colorado where he was Artistic Director of the Boulder Chorale from 2001-2010. Under his leadership, the Chorale grew from a single community chorus to become one of the leading choral arts umbrella organizations in the region, serving 200 singers in multiple graded ensembles for children and adults. He was honored with a 2008 Boulder County Pacesetter Award “in recognition of significant contributions to the arts and entertainment in the community.”
Dr. Snyder taught high school in Fairfield County, Connecticut, and served on the music faculties of Connecticut College and the Yale School of Music. A strong advocate for music education in our public schools, he established the Yale Glee Club/New Haven High School Choral Festival, an annual event now in its ninth year, and established a similar project at Jacksonville University in 2012. Choruses under his direction have toured to most major cities of the United States, and to Norway, France, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Greece, Poland, Italy, and the People's Republic of China.
Dr. Snyder is active as a guest conductor, clinician and adjudicator of choruses, and has directed church music programs in Connecticut and Colorado. He holds degrees in choral literature and performance, conducting and music education from the University of Colorado (D.M.A.), Yale University School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music (M.M.), and Colorado State University (M.M.; B.M.Ed.).
