Dr. Trey Davis is Associate Director of Choral Activities at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville where he conducts beginning and advanced choirs, teaches music education courses, and supervises student teacher placement. In demand as clinician and guest artist, Dr. Davis is also a conductor to the Platteville Children's Choir and is Assistant Conductor to the Dubuque Chorale.
Prior to his appointment in Platteville, Dr. Davis was a D.M.A. candidate in choral conducting at Texas Tech University with Richard Bjella. In addition to his capacity as conductor of University Singers, he also served as Assistant Conductor to the University Choir and conducted the ensemble in a performance for the Texas Music Educators Association annual conference. In his work with undergraduate conductors, a student was selected as one of only eight semi-finalists in the most recent national American Choral Directors Association Student Conductor Competition.
Dr. Davis completed M.M. studies in choral conducting at Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, New Jersey, serving as graduate assistant to the 250-voice Symphonic Choir under Dr. Joe Miller. While at Westminster Choir College, he prepared choirs for performances with many of the leading symphony orchestras of the world, including the New York Philharmonic and San Francisco Symphony at venues such as Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. He also toured extensively with the 40-voice, Westminster Choir, and was featured as a soloist on the internationally released album, Noël , with mezzo-soprano Jennifer Larmore.
Dr. Davis has demonstrated a devotion to early music. Most recently, he undertook a full reconstruction of Jean Richafort’s requiem mass amid Sarum plainchant and historically informed, liturgical drama. A publication detailing this project is currently under consideration for inclusion in the Choral Journal. In Princeton, New Jersey, Dr. Davis frequently performed with conductor, Dr. Andrew Megill, violinist, Nancy Wilson, and continuo specialist, Holly Chatham, on works including J.S. Bach's Saint Matthew Passion and Dieterich Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri.
Prior to his graduate studies, Dr. Davis served as Choral Director at Temple High School in Temple, Texas. He earned a B.A. in music education with an emphasis in vocal performance from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.
