Music Director Emeritus
Dr. Jameson Marvin founded the Jameson Singers in 2010 and served as music director until 2019. Previously, he was Director of Choral Activities at Harvard University for 32 years. During his tenure, Harvard’s Choral Program developed an esteemed national reputation, serving beginning singers and advanced musicians. The Harvard Glee Club, Radcliffe Choral Society, and Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum rose to be among the premier collegiate choruses in America. Dr. Marvin’s choral artistry is mirrored by his knowledge of style and performance practices of historical eras, and his insightful, inspiring performances.
Since his retirement from Harvard, in addition to directing the Jameson Singers, Dr. Marvin has enjoyed choral residencies at the Universities of Southern California, Oregon, Stanford, Michigan, Temple, Boston, and Yale, and in fall 2013 was Visiting Professor at Stanford University, conducting their choral ensembles. He teaches choral literature of the 19th and 20th centuries to the doctoral students in conducting at Boston University.
Raised in Glendale, California, he received his B.A. degree in Music Theory, History, and Composition from UC Santa Barbara, M.A. in Choral Conducting and Early Music Performance from Stanford University, and D.M.A. in Choral Music from the University of Illinois.
