Ronald Staheli<br />

Jury member<br />

Dr. Ronald Staheli is professor emeritus at Brigham Young University, where for 36 years,<br />

he directed the choral division and conducted the Brigham Young University Singers. He<br />

also appeared regularly as conductor in performances involving the university’s combined<br />

choirs and orchestra of Brigham Young University. He has traveled widely as a clinician and<br />

guest conductor, and has become known for what a colleague called “a profound sense of<br />

phrasing and articulation, which informs all his work.”<br />

In July of 2001, Dr. Staheli conducted an all-Mozart concert with choirs of the Zimriya<br />

International Choral Festival. Dr. Staheli was a guest lecturer at the Fourth International<br />

Choral Symposium in Sydney, Australia, where the BYU Singers also performed concerts in<br />

the world-famous Opera House and Town Hall. Travels have also taken him and the choir<br />

to the Middle East, Russia, Western and Eastern Europe, the South Pacific, and West Africa.<br />

Dr. Staheli is a fine pianist and regularly arranges many selections performed by the BYU<br />

Singers, several of which are now published.
