Trevor Day School Treble Chorus
Trevor Day School offers a traditional academic curriculum in an inquiry-based environment designed to engage each student’s intellectual and personal development. Trevor is noted for its robust arts curriculum that includes dance, theatre, and visual arts, in addition to music. The Trevor music program fuels passions, connects community, and complements and strengthens students’ academic pursuits. An appreciation for music is integral to the growth and development of our students and plays an important role in every school day. In fact, Trevor believes that positive musical experiences can enhance intellectual understanding. The Treble Chorus (Women’s Chorus) is one of a dozen high school choral and instrumental ensembles, including men’s, women’s and mixed choruses and quartets. In recent years, Trevor choruses have performed in France and Italy, collaborated with the Australian Girls’ Choir, participated in master classes with Cantus and Voices of Ascension and sung the National Anthem at Citi Field.
John Liepold serves as Chair of the Music Department and Director of Choral Music at Trevor Day School and as the founding conductor of the dynamic professional men’s chorus, The Singing Apes. Liepold has led vibrant choral programs in New York, Connecticut, and Virginia. He received critical acclaim for his work with the Connecticut Choral Society and Orchestra and the University of Virginia Men’s Glee Club, with whom he made several recordings and commissioned and premiered a dozen major new additions to the repertoire. Choruses under Liepold’s direction have given command performances at regional and national conventions of the American Choral Directors’ Association and the Intercollegiate Men’s Chorus Association. His choirs have made national and international tours, performing at the Cathedrals of Chartres and Notre Dame de Paris, at Southwark Cathedral (London) and Christ Church Cathedral (Oxford), at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, and for the President of the United States.
