Dr. Eric Delson, conductor of the Brussels Choral Society, has been its Musical Director since 2002. He has been involved in musical composition, conducting and music education for nearly 30 years. He writes: “The Missa per Concordiam was written for the Brussels Choral Society in commemoration of my 20th year as Musical Director. Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Romantic gestures can be found throughout, lending the work a historical grounding while bringing ‘concordant’ harmonies to the traditional mass structure.”  

Ars Choralis and the Brussels Choral Society collaborated on Ars Choralis’s virtual concert of the Fauré Requiem, released online on June 13, 2021, dedicated to those who died during the early stage of the COVID pandemic and to honor all those who provided care, support and services during that difficult time.

Delson has studied composition with Lukas Foss, Marjorie Merryman, Thomas Wells and Marshall Barnes, instrumental conducting with Craig Kirchoff and Harvey Benstein, and choral conducting with Lorna Cooke DeVaron and Constantina Tsolainou, among others. Prior to moving to Belgium, he taught Music Theory, History, Composition and Choral Music at the New England Conservatory, Boston University and several other private institutions in Boston and New York. A graduate of Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Music, he received his master’s degree in composition from the New England Conservatory of Music and his Doctorate in Musical Arts from Boston University.
