Dr. Daniel Spratlan is currently in his first year as director of the Drexel University Chorus and Chamber Singers. This also marks his 10th season as Director of Music at the Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill. Previously, he has served on the conducting faculties at Haverford College, Temple University, and Rutgers University. He earned his DMA in Choral Conducting from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, his MM in Choral Conducting from Westminster Choir College, and BA in Music from Earlham College.
An active professional singer, he is in his 15th season singing with the two-time Grammy Award-winning choir The Crossing with whom he has recorded two dozen albums. Many of The Crossing's 110 commissioned works focus on social, environmental, and political issues, and Dr. Spratlan hopes to share several of these works with the Drexel community. He has performed as a soloist and professional chorister with ensembles such as the New York Choral Artists, Clarion Choir, Philadelphia Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Concert Chorale of New York, Opera Philadelphia, Piffaro, Tempesta di Mare, San Francisco Symphony, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic in venues such as Carnegie Hall, David Geffen Hall, the Kimmel Center, and Walt Disney Concert Hall.
