Rosalind Hall

As Director of Choirs at Brigham Young University, Utah, Associate Professor Rosalind Hall oversees the largest university choral program in the US, in which 1,000 students participate each semester. In addition to teaching classes in choral music, she conducts the BYU Concert Choir, a mixed choir of 100 advanced-level singers, as well as the 180-voice BYU Men’s Chorus. Beyond her regular performances with the BYU Choirs, she has produced several top-selling CDs, including the recent “Set Apart,” an album of newly composed arrangements of hymns which charted in the top ten on Billboard’s Classical catalog in 2015.

Before coming to the US to pursue a post-graduate degree in choral music, Professor Hall’s British training in vocal performance was at London’s Royal Academy of Music and Edinburgh and London Universities. Although she has now lived and worked in the US for 25 years, the strong choral traditions of her homeland, Wales, still play a large role in her work. Renowned for her innovative and vivacious approach to vocal and rehearsal technique, she is an active clinician and adjudicator on both sides of the Atlantic. For four consecutive years (2013-16), the Princeton Review has named her as one of the top 10 professors in the USA.
