Biographical history

Concentus Corvinus is a western Canadian music ensemble formed by Music Director and Conductor, George Corwin. The ensemble performs music chosen from standard repertoire and contemporary or unusual works of established twentieth century and Canadian composers. Corwin studied music at Ithica College, and joined the Ensemble Department of the Eastman School of Music in 1960. In 1967, he was awarded a Ph.D. from Eastman in conducting, performance and pedagogy. After teaching at Ball State University in Indiana until 1969, he joined the Music Department of the University of Victoria, where he remained until his retirement in 1995. During his tenure at UVic, Corwin conducted the University Orchestra and Chorus, and the University Chamber Singers. Since retirement, Corwin has been active as a guest conductor at home and abroad, and acts as a clinician and adjudicator at music festivals across the country.
