The Schola Cantorum Records
Schola Cantorum is a Norfolk based community volunteer a capella choral ensemble which performs western vocal music ranging from early to modern choral works.
Schola Cantorum, meaning a “school for song”, started its concert series in the fall of 1995 and was conducted by David Clayton. The mission to teach and to perform was refined by Dr. Lee Teply, a member of the music faculty at Old Dominion University. During the marking of the four hundredth anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, Schola Cantorum welcomed Gayle Johnson, musicologist and founding director of the Williamsburg Boys choir as director. In 2007, Schola Cantorum introduced a new artistic director, Agnes Fuller Mobley-Wynne, a voice professor at Old Dominion University.
