Welcome to the webpage of Miguel Ángel Felipe.
As a conductor, I am Director of Choral Activities at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and Director of Music and Liturgy at the Lutheran Church of Honolulu. I spend summers as artistic director of the International Meeting on Choral Music in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil. Before moving to Hawai‘i I held faculty positions at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Mt Holyoke College, and The Boston Conservatory. Other positions include conducting at Harvard & Brown Universities and seven years as artistic director of the Boston Choral Ensemble, one of the Northeast's premiere chamber choirs.
As a teacher, I have taught choral repertoire & performance practice to graduate choral students and have led numerous courses in conducting, aural skills, harmony, and counterpoint. I lead workshops and adjudicate around the US, in South America, and Southeast Asia.
As a scholar, I am especially interested in choral music of the late Renaissance and early Baroque, contemporary vocal works, and the newly emerging choral culture of Southeast Asia. In addition, current projects inquire into the relationship of choral societies and their communities.
