Paul Krasnovsky

Paul Krasnovsky Dr. Paul Krasnovsky is in his thirty-fifth year as a faculty member at the University of Indianapolis, where he is Professor of Music, Director of Choral Activities, and teaches courses in basic and advanced conducting. Reviews in the Indianapolis Star have described his UIndy student choral ensembles as "impeccable in the demanding score" (September 2009); and displaying "good tone as well as heft in meeting the heaven-storming finale's many challenges" (Beethoven Ninth Symphony, November 2009). In addition, he created and led Mon Choeur, the university's critically acclaimed resident, professional vocal chamber ensemble, which went on to make a Washington, D.C. debut at the Kennedy Center. A performance by Mon Choeur was hailed by the Indianapolis Star as one of the top five classical music concerts of the year 2000 in Indianapolis. A 20th Anniversary Reunion concert was given by Mon Choeur in February 2011.

At the University of Indianapolis he has conducted productions of opera including Mozart's Così fan tutte, Puccini's La bohème, Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado by Gilbert and Sullivan, and a production of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas with the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra. He is a guest conductor and clinician for a variety of instrumental and vocal groups and has appeared with the Ronen Chamber Ensemble, the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra, the Bloomington Early Music Festival, and the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir. In November 2011 Dr. Krasnovsky led the Ronen Chamber Ensemble in a performance of Dvorák's Serenade, op. 44. In another concert with Ronen, featuring IVCI Gold Medalist Judith Ingolfsson, he conducted a complete performance of Stravinsky's The Soldier's Tale. Krasnovsky drew critical praise for the "incisive precision" of his conducting.

Ensembles under his direction have toured nationally and internationally appearing in China, England, Scotland, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Greece. Dr. Krasnovsky's ensembles have also appeared in performances for state and regional conferences of the American Choral Directors Association and with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra and the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra. Under his leadership UIndy choirs were invited to perform at the Indiana Music Educators Association Conference and for the Indiana All-State Choir.

He has served as President of the Indiana Choral Directors Association and holds the degree of Doctor of Music in choral conducting from the Indiana University School of Music, and degrees in conducting and musicology from the Mannes College of Music and Queens College of the City University of New York.
