The Concert Choir is conducted by Timothy Peter, a native of Minnesota who earned his Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Arizona. Peter joined Stetson in 2012. Tammy Miller is the collaborative keyboard artist and an adjunct faculty member at Stetson. She received her B.A. from Stetson University and her M.A. from University of Central Florida.
