Meet Our Artistic Director

Jordan Van Biert

Over the past decade, Jordan has emerged as a respected choral leader and organization builder, uniting singers in the common goal of creating rich musical experiences – for themselves, for each other, and for audiences. Jordan is an experienced conductor, a passionate educator, and an accomplished singer.


Jordan founded Chronos Vocal Ensemble in 2013 to pursue excellence in choral performance with a non-professional ensemble.

He also serves as workshop leader, adjudicator, juror, and organizational consultant. In summer of 2016, he was part of a group of international conductors selected to conduct the Stuttgart Chamber Choir in performances as part of a masterclass with Frieder Bernius.

His work with the choir is gaining wider recognition: he has been recognized with a nomination as Emerging Artist in Edmonton’s Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts, and recently received the Con Spirito award from Choir Alberta, for “spirit, dedication, and commitment to choral music in the Province of Alberta.”

In Edmonton, Jordan also conducts Vocal Alchemy and Ante Meridiem, and serves as Director of Music at Trinity Lutheran Church.
