The Conservatory Singers is the flagship choral ensemble at the Conservatory, conducted by Dr. Jennaya Robison. The membership of the chorus is comprised of graduate and highly-skilled undergraduate students. The Conservatory Singers has a rich history of creative programming and collaboration, and regularly commissions and performs new choral works by America’s finest composers. In addition to numerous Kansas City-area performances each semester, the ensemble also tours annually throughout the Midwest. Recent events included a performance of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion at the Southwest Division of the American Choral Directors Association Convention in Kansas City in March of 2016 and a feature concert at the National Convention of the American Chordal Directors Association in 2019 featuring the music of Chen Yi and Zhou Long.
