THE GENEVANS, the student choir of Geneva College, is heir to a tradition of choral singing dating from the early years of the college over a century and a half ago. The mission of the choir expresses Geneva’s belief that music, as one of God’s finest gifts, meets a deep, universal need in people. The choir’s repertoire is broad and varied, reflecting the belief that “all of life, always and everywhere, is life in the presence of God.”
In 2012, David Kenneth Smith was named the new conductor of THE GENEVANS, after the 31-year tenure of Dr. Robert Copeland. Having directed psalm singing in Geneva College’s Chapel program for the six years, Dr. Smith now focuses on two roles, that of conducting THE GENEVANS and teaching Voice. Dr. Smith earned his degrees in Voice Performance at Wheaton Conservatory and Indiana University, Bloomington. He lives near Cranberry Twp., Penn. with his wife, pianist Marie Libal-Smith.
Of Geneva's 96 full-time faculty members, 76% have earned doctorates.
