Darren Dailey

Darren Dailey has been shaping The Jacksonville Children's Chorus into a world-class organization since 2006. Under his leadership, The Chorus has grown to serve over 500 First Coast children annually with seven choirs, multiple rehearsal locations, and outreach throughout Northeast Florida. He has introduced Chorus singers and audiences to renowned guest artists like Kristin Chenoweth and Amy Grant, and he has broadened The Chorus’ opportunities to include performance tours in Canada, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Sweden, Italy, Greece, and Ireland.

Mr. Dailey has served as guest conductor in Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center and for All-State Honor Choirs. As the founding artistic director of the Boston Children’s Chorus, Mr. Dailey and his chorus performed at the 2004 Democratic Convention, appeared as the host chorus on the television special, "Raising the Roof: A Celebration of the Life of Martin Luther King, Jr. in Song," broadcast nationally on WGN, and performed internationally in Japan.

Mr. Dailey has produced three recordings: "Come and Rejoice," "Sing!" and "Voices for Voices." His work may also be heard on "A Boston Christmas" (Back Bay Chorale), "Building Bridges" (Mystic Chorale) and "Amani Celebration," a limited-edition compact disc of holiday songs from 15 children’s choirs to benefit African children who have been orphaned because of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Mr. Dailey received a Bachelor of Music Education degree with a concentration in Voice from Westminster Choir College and a Master of Music Education in Choral Conducting from Appalachian State University’s Hayes School of Music.
