Bio/Research

Trent A. Patterson is in his seventh year as Director of Choral Studies and Music Education in the Department of Music at Webster University. A veteran music educator with nearly two decades of teaching experience, Dr. Patterson previously taught in the Orange County Public Schools (Orlando), one of the largest and most diverse school districts in the United States. Previous appointments include Director of Choral Activities at Davenport Central High School (IA) and Associate Choral Director at Winter Park High School (FL).
During Patterson’s fourth year at Webster University, the Chamber Singers performed for the 2014 Southwestern Divisional American Choral Directors Association conference in Little Rock, Arkansas, and they were the headline college/university choir for the 2014 Missouri Music Educators Association conference at Tan-Tar-A. The Chamber Singers have undertaken three consecutive spring tours, with concert performances and high school exchanges in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Florida. Their 2016 spring tour to Central Florida included a set of performances with Grammy award-winning singer Josh Groban.

Patterson received his Doctor of Musical Arts degree in choral conducting from Michigan State University, Master of Arts in choral conducting from San José State University, and Bachelor of Music in choral music education from The Florida State University. He is an active member of the American Choral Directors Association (and Missouri Choral Directors Association), Chorus America, College Music Society, the National Association for Music Education (and Missouri Music Educators Association), and the National Collegiate Choral Organization. From 2013-2015, Patterson served the Missouri Choral Directors Association as Repertoire and Resources Chair for college and university choirs.
In addition to his appointment as Associate Professor of Music at Webster University, Dr. Patterson is the choral director at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Webster Groves, where four Webster music students serve as Scholar Singers in the Emmanuel Choir.
