The Philadelphia Singers was founded in 1972 by Michael Korn as a fully professional 32-voice chamber ensemble that performed an extensive repertoire ranging from Renaissance to contemporary works. During the 1980s, the group rose to prominence with the Philadelphia premières of works by Poulenc and Gershwin and world premières of compositions by contemporary composers. David Hayes succeeded the recently deceased Michael Korn in 1992. Under his leadership the symphonic version of the chorus was named resident chorus of the Philadelphia Orchestra. The Philadelphia Singers performed its “Farewell Concert” in May 2015, completing 43 years as the pre-eminent choral ensemble of Philadelphia.
