The Cathedral of St. Philip has hired Dale Adelmann to be its canon for music, cathedral Dean Samuel Candler announced last month.
The calling of Adelmann concluded a yearlong search. He will officially take his post in August.
Adelmann has served as the director of music at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills, Calif., since 2003. There he has supervised and conducted three choirs: the All Saints’ Choir, the Parish Choir and the children’s choristers program.
From 1991 to 2003, he was the organist-choirmaster at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Buffalo, N.Y., leading a variety of choirs. He also was the music director of the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus from 2001 to 2003.
Adelmann earned his bachelor’s from the University of Michigan, his master’s from the Yale University School of Music and the Institute of Sacred Music, and his doctorate from St. John’s College at the University of Cambridge, England.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Dale Adelmann in our (long!) search process, and I am eager for him to join this outstanding cathedral staff,” Candler wrote to congregants. “He will add steady energy, wisdom and care to our musical community as well as our entire cathedral community.”
