The ensemble’s 2017-2018 season includes a concert tour of the Midwest; performances and broadcasts at its home in Princeton; its annual residency at the Spoleto Festival USA and the release of a new recording. The choir’s 2016-2017 season included performances of Julia Wolfe’s Pulitzer Prize winning Anthracite Fields at the historic Roebling WireWorks, as well as concerts at the World Symposium on Choral Music in Barcelona.
The Westminster Choir has been hailed by audiences and critics for its creative programing and ability to deeply engage listeners. Its performance of John Adams’ El Niño, conducted by Joe Miller, at the 2014 Spoleto Festival USA was praised by The New York Times as “… superb. Meticulously prepared, the chorus was remarkable for its precision, unanimity and power.”
The Westminster Choir has made three recordings with Joe Miller. The Heart’s Reflection: Music of Daniel Elder, was described by Classics Today as “first rate” and “highly recommended.” The choir’s debut recording with Maestro Miller, Flower of Beauty, earned critical praise from American Record Guide, which described the Westminster Choir as “the gold standard for academic choirs in America.”
