We Have a New Director
After founding and over 45 years of keeping Collegium Musicum on track and performing, through some spectacular times and some harder years, our beloved Dr. Donald Oglesby is taking a well-earned retirement.
This year, we welcome Matthew Brady to our musical family. He already has some wonderful plans for us in the coming year and beyond.
American conductor and tenor, Matthew Brady is currently serving on the faculty at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami. There he conducts Symphonic Choir and Bella Voce, and teaches courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition to his academic post he is the Artistic Director of Miami Collegium Musicum. Prior to joining the Frost School, Matthew was the Director of Choral Activities at the New Mexico Military Institute and led the Choral Program at California State University, San Bernardino.
Matthew is an active professional ensemble singer. Recent engagements have included performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the Choral pick-up, Dallas Bach Choir, Dallas Choral Festival, Westminster Summer Festival Chorus and more.
Matthew is finishing a Doctor of Musical Arts at the University of North Texas. He holds a Master of Arts in Choral Conducting with distinction, from the University of Birmingham (UK), a Master of Music in Choral Conducting with honors, from Westminster Choir College, and a Bachelor of Music Education from Western Michigan University.
