The 2014-2015 season marks Joshua Habermann's fourth year as Chorus Director of the Dallas Symphony Chorus, the official vocal ensemble of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

As the former assistant conductor of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, he prepared the chorus for performances with conductors Michael Tilson Thomas and Charles Dutoit. As a tenor, he has performed with the Oregon Bach Festival Chorus under Helmuth Rilling, and made three recordings with Austin-based Conspirare. Discover this versatile musician’s more personal side during this AIR Time as he shares about his musical and passionate life with our moderator Chris Tucker. The movie following the interview – AMADEUS – is perfect since the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, under the baton of Maestro Jaap van Zweden, will be performing the Mozart Requiem on April 16-19 at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas.
So, how do you get from ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST to AMADEUS? Easy. The common denominator is director Milos Forman. AMADEUS is the incredible story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, told by his peer and secret rival Antonio Salieri who narrates while confined to an insane asylum. Starring F. Murray Abraham and Tom Hulce, AMADEUS was awarded eight Oscars. Music geeks might know the music/choral conductors for the film include Laszlo Heltay (Academy Chorus of St. Martin in the Fields), Sir Neville Marriner and Simon Preston (The Choristers of Westminster Abbey).
