Eduardo Garcia-Novelli, Conductor
An Argentinian native, García-Novelli holds bachelor’s degrees in music education and choral conducting from the Conservatorio Manuel de Falla and the Conservatorio Juan José Castro respectively. After he graduated, he remained in Argentina to lead the choral program at Belgrano Day School while simultaneously acting as Assistant Director of Argentina’s National Young People’s Choir, both of which are located in Buenos Aires. Directing multiple groups of musicians at once set the pattern for García-Novelli’s career, and he continues to work with a number of different choirs to this day.
After several years of touring with these youth performance groups, García-Novelli moved to Princeton, New Jersey in the United States to receive his Master of Music degree at Westminster Choir College and then completed his Doctorate of Musical Arts degree at the University of Houston in Houston, Texas. In the following years he would go on to serve as Director or Assistant Director of several Texan choruses, both collegiate and ecclesiastical, earning national recognition for their performances.
In 2008, Dr. García-Novelli brought his talents to Carthage College and has since led the Carthage Choir in three European tours, tours of the United States, and, of course, in performances at Carnegie Hall. Since their debut concert in 2011, the Carthage Choir performed again in Carnegie Hall in 2015 as part of a festival choir singing Schubert’s Mass in G. García-Novelli and the Carthage Choir will be returning for a third time to Carnegie hall on March 27, 2017 where they will perform Mozart’s Coronation Mass. This marks the fourth time Maestro García-Novelli and the Carthage Choir have performed with MidAmerica Productions or MidAm International – three times in Carnegie Hall and once in the Peterskirche in Vienna, Austria in June of 2016 – and we couldn’t be more pleased to have them join us again.
