My name is Joshua Bronfman and I am the Director of Choral Activities at the University of North Dakota where I direct the UND Concert Choir and Varsity Bards Men’s Chorus. I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in choral conducting, choral literature, and ensembles. I coordinate graduate studies in choral conducting, and am Graduate Director for the UND Department of Music . In addition to my duties at UND, I am the Artistic Director of the Grand Forks Master Chorale, a select chamber choir.
I recently completed my Ph.D. in Choral Music Education and Choral Conducting at Florida State University. I received my Master’s degree from Oregon State University, and my Bachelor’s degree from Florida State University. Prior to pursuing my graduate degrees, I taught choir and general music in Oregon at the elementary and middle levels. I currently live in Grand Forks with my wife Niki, and children Lucia, Leah, and Desmond.
