SAINT TIKHON CHOIR
The Saint Tikhon Choir is a professional vocal ensemble founded in 2015 by Benedict Sheehan and Archimandrite Sergius, Abbot of Saint Tikhon’s Monastery, with a mission to foster and build up an American Orthodox choral tradition at the highest artistic level. The choir is becoming recognised as one of the premier ensembles in America performing Orthodox repertoire.
Composer and conductor Benedict Sheehan is director of music at Saint Tikhon’s Seminary and Monastery in Pennsylvania, artistic director of the Saint Tikhon Choir, and CEO and founder of the Artefact Institute. His works have been performed by Skylark Vocal Ensemble, Cappella Romana, the Saint Tikhon Choir, and many others. His works are published by Oxford University Press and Artefact Publications.
Two recordings featuring Sheehan’s works were released in 2020: Once Upon A Time, from Skylark Vocal Ensemble, and Gabriel’s Message, from Bob Chilcott, John Rutter, and The Oxford Choir.
