GREGG SMITH SINGERS

The Gregg Smith Singers were organized in 1955 when Gregg Smith, then a graduate teaching assistant in the music department of the Los Angeles campus of the University of California, gathered together a group of young singers and musicians interested in performing new or little-known works. In 1958 the group scored its first major success with the Los Angeles Monday Evening Concerts series in a programme of Bach and Schoenberg. Since then they have toured extensively in Europe and America and have performed in most of the major international music festivals. Each member of the chorus is a music graduate from a university or college in southern California and is also a professional musician, many singers doubling as instrumentalists. They have been applauded by critics for their perfect intonation and admirable sensitivity of details of musical style and texture, as well as for their incredible musicianship, discipline and devotion. Gregg Smith himself has won an international reputation for his work with the Singers and is also widely recognised as a composer. He has won three Grammy awards for his recordings of Charles Ives and of Gabrieli. Recordings by the Gregg Smith Singers include works of Stephen Foster and Victor Herbert, contemporary American composers, and Igor Stravinsky, as well as arrangements and arrangements and compositions by Gregg Smith.
