    William R. Green is the Dean of the School of Music at Lee University, where he oversees a broad program of undergraduate and graduate music degrees with dedicated study in performance, music education, church music, and music business. As a Professor of Music, he also conducts the Lee University Chorale and the Lee University Festival Choir and teaches graduate and undergraduate conducting. He earned the Doctor of Musical Arts in Choral Conducting from the University of Kentucky and the Master of Music from Georgia State University. Green performed and recorded with Robert Shaw as a member of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus and Chamber Chorus. The impact of this musical experience led Green to doctoral research on Shaw’s techniques on rhythm and phrasing, specifically in relation to the works of J.S. Bach.

    In addition to his work with Shaw, Green has collaborated with many of the leading conductors of our time, including John Rutter, Yoel Levi, Z. Randall Stroope, Ann Howard Jones, and Jefferson Johnson. He has led performances of many of the major works for chorus and orchestra, including Handel’s Messiah, the Requiems of Mozart and Fauré, Brahms’ Ein Deutches Requiem, Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy and Mass in C Major, Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music, and the works of Bach, Britten, Poulenc, Vivaldi, and Schubert, among others. Ruth Cartridge of the Chattanooga Pulse said, “Green’s touch with the waves of sound in Brahms was simply lovely. There is an aura of suppressed energy in his pianissimos that would make many choral directors envious.”

    He is active nationally and internationally as a guest conductor, adjudicator and clinician, most recently working with choirs from Georgia, Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, and South Carolina. He has presented workshops throughout the United States, as well as in Central America and Israel.
