Scott MacPherson is the founding Artistic Director of the San Antonio Chamber Choir. MacPherson has consistently earned praise
for the high standards of performance of choirs under his direction. His programming blends a variety of musical
styles ranging from early music through new works commissioned especially for him and his ensembles. MacPherson is
in demand as a guest conductor, choral clinician, and adjudicator, and has extensive orchestral conducting experience.
His research of contemporary choral music and choral teaching techniques in Germany have resulted in guest conducting
appearances with the award-winning Modus Novus Chor based in Cologne, the Vokalensemble Kölner Dom of the Cologne Cathedral,
as well as the male vocal ensemble Arcanum Musicae in Dresden. His international reputation has also drawn acclaim in Taiwan,
where he conducted collegiate choirs and led workshops in conducting, choral eurhythmics, and choral pedagogy at conferences
in Pingtung City and Taipei. This fall MacPherson begins his new appointment as Associate Professor of Music and Director of
Choral Activities at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, where he will conduct choirs and lead the graduate choral conducting
program. For the previous 15 years, MacPherson served as the Director of Choral Activities at Trinity University in
San Antonio. Before moving to San Antonio he served on the choral faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison School
of Music where he was a colleague of the late Robert Fountain. Collegiate choirs under his direction have performed at NCCO,
Western ACDA, WMEA, and TMEA. He holds degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Southern
California. MacPherson is also the conductor of the Isthmus Vocal Ensemble, a professional-grade choir based in Madison,
Wisconsin that prepares an annual summer concert.
