Jefferson University Choir

The Jefferson University Choir was founded in 1970 by Dr. Robert Sataloff who conducted it from 1970 until 1975, and from 1980 through 2009.  During Dr. Sataloff’s five years in Ann Arbor beginning in 1975, the choir was sustained by three conductors, including Dr. Michael Mahla, who has returned as associate conductor.  The choir is delighted to have rejoined the Jefferson community after a seven-year absence.

The choir is deeply indebted to Dr. Steven Klasko, President of Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University), whose support allowed the return of the Jefferson University choir after a 7-year hiatus.  His commitment, and the efforts of his chief of staff and Executive Vice President Mr. John Ekarius, who facilitated the choir’s resurgence on only three weeks’ notice prior to the beginning of this concert season, are appreciated greatly.  They attended TJU Choir concerts before the university disbanded the group prior to their arrival at Jefferson; and we are indebted for their confidence, and for the university’s commitment of approximately half of the funds needed to present the concert season.
