Welcome, Dr. Zeuch!

Dr. Kyle D. Zeuch

Congratulations to Dr. Kyle D. Zeuch, who has been appointed as the 19th Music Director of the Harrisburg Choral Society.  He will begin his tenure this summer, and will take the podium for our 2019-2020 concert season, replacing departing director Dr Jason Vodicka.

Dr. Zeuch is Director of Choral Activities at Lebanon Valley College, where he conducts the choirs and teaches courses in music education and choral conducting.  He has previously been Choir Director at Rivera HS in Brownsville TX and Director of Children and Youth Choirs at Michigan State University.  He has a music education degree from Capital University (Ohio), and a Masters and Doctorate of Music in Choral Conducting from Michigan State University.  He is affiliated with the National Association for Music Education, the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association, and the American Choral Directors Association.

Dr. Zeuch is excited to begin his term as Music Director: "The opportunity to conduct the Harrisburg Choral Society is truly an exciting venture. I look forward to working with the leadership and the singers to create meaningful performances for our audiences and a sense of unity that begins with us and extends into our community."  He is looking forward to continuing the work of the Society: "I believe that we will use choral music as a vehicle to lift up our neighbors, spread significant messages, and enliven the human soul. I would like to invite anyone that shares a passion of singing to learn more about the organization so that we can continue to flourish for many years to come."

Farewell, Dr. Vodicka

Dr. Vodicka rehearses the Carmina Burana

At the close of the 2018-19 season, the Harrisburg Choral Society will bid farewell to music director Dr. Jason Vodicka.  After five seasons of leading the Society, Dr. Vodicka is moving on to continue his academic career as Assistant Professor of Music Education at Westminster Choir College, Rider University in Princeton, NJ.

Dr. Vodicka joined the HCS in 2014, taking the baton from Dr. Robert Hart Baker.  At that time, Dr. Vodicka was assistant professor of music at Susquehanna University and an active clinician and researcher.  In his time with the HCS, he has raised the musicianship and technique of the ensemble, and introduced the singers to many new and unique singing opportunities.  Some highlights of his tenure include a joint concert with one of his former organizations, the Pennsbury Community Chorus in Fairless Hills, PA, of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, both in Southeastern PA and in the Harrisburg area; performing for the American Choral Directors Association's PA meeting at Susquehanna University; and more recently, joining with the West Shore Symphony Orchestra and SU colleague Dr. Jennifer Sacher Wiley to perform Brahms on their concert series.

Dr. Vodicka inspired and elevated the Harrisburg Choral Society, and while we will miss his presence, we will carry on the great work he has done to make the HCS the wonderful choral experience it is.
