Since the founding of the University in 1865, singing has been a vital part of the traditions of Lehigh. Conductor and composer Dr. Steven Sametz, Ronald J. Ulrich Professor of Music, is only the fifth Director of Choral Activities in Lehigh’s long history. The program became co-educational upon the arrival of women on Lehigh’s campus in 1971. Professor Sun Min Lee, joined the choral faculty in 2012 and holds the position of Robert Cutler Professor of Practice in Choral Arts. One distinguishing quality of the Lehigh University Choir is its musical flexibility: In concert, the University Choir effortlessly moves from on genre to another. The University Choir has performed major works such as Händel's Messiah, the Requiem settings by Mozart, Verdi, Brahms, Fauré and Britten.
