Named Conductor of the Year in 2004 by Musical America, he is the founder and musical director of the New York Choral Artists, and was an artistic director of the Spoleto Festival USA for 37 years and conductor of the Westminster Choir for 33 years. He has collaborated with such conductors as Claudio Abbado, Daniel Barenboim, Leonard Bernstein, Pierre Boulez, Chailly, Colin Davis, Alan Gilbert, Carlo Maria Giulini, Lorin Maazel, Kurt Masur, Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Muti, Seiji Ozawa, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Robert Shaw, and William Steinberg. Dr. Flummerfelt’s choirs have been featured on 45 recordings, including Grammy Award–winning versions of Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 with Bernstein, Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra, and John Adams’s On the Transmigration of Souls. He has also received two Grammy nominations, and his Delos recording of Brahms’s choral works — Singing for Pleasure, with the Westminster Choir — was chosen by The New York Times as a favorite among Brahms recordings.
