Jo-Michael Scheibe chairs the Thornton School of Music’s department of choral and sacred music at the University of Southern California. No stranger to the American Choral Director’s Association (ACDA), Scheibe served as National President (2011-2013), National President Elect (2008-2011), Western Division President (1991-1993), and National Repertoire and Standards Chairperson for Community Colleges (1980-1989). Ensembles under his leadership have sung at seven national ACDA conventions, two national conventions of the Music Educators National Conference and at the National Conference of the National Collegiate Choral Organization. The USC Thornton Chamber Singers were one of twenty-five choirs selected to perform at the Tenth World Choral Symposium in Seoul, Korea in August 2014. The Chamber Singers were recently featured at the 2015 ACDA National Conference in Salt Lake City.
A champion of contemporary music, Scheibe regularly commissions and performs new works of choral literature. Music publishers Walton, Colla Voce Music, Pavane, and Santa Barbara distribute the Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series internationally.
