Works Conducted

In his 44-year career, Michael Kemp has conducted over 350 masterworks of the standard choral/orchestral repertoire. Two Philadelphia premieres conducted by Michael include Vaughan Williams' Sancta Civitas and Karl Jenkins' Gloria, as well as the full orchestral version of Annelies by James Whitbourn. Michael has twice trained choral conductors from throughout Jamaica, and his choirs have regularly toured internationally to Salzburg, Vienna, and Krakow. Michael is equally at home working with adults and youth, and his expertise encompasses both choral and orchestral conducting.
