About the Choirs and Conductor
UNCW Concert Choir and Chamber Choir are the two academic choral groups at UNCW, with members selected from across campus. Although singers are drawn from many different academic disciplines, they share a common love of choral singing and are quite capable as singers, sight-readers and choral musicians. The groups often combine for the performance of larger works, sometimes in collaboration with other ensembles in the region. The Chamber Choir has appeared on tour in Europe 13 times, with featured presentations at St. Anne’s Music Society (London), Thomaskirche (Leipzig, Germany), City Museum (Munich) and Karlskirche (Vienna).

Joe Hickman came to UNCW in 1979 and has served as director of choral activities since that time. He has also served as assistant conductor and later music director of the UNCW Community Orchestra (later re-named Wilmington Symphony). In addition to an active schedule of teaching, Hickman has served as an administrator within the Department of Music and later as faculty assistant to the provost, representing the Division of Academic Affairs in matters concerning construction of classroom buildings, including the Cultural Arts Building.
     Recent publication projects include orchestral reductions of the Haydn Creation which is in production with Carus Verlag of Stuttgart, Germany; and Verdi’s Rigoletto with Doblinger Music Publisher of Vienna, Austria. Earlier, he published several collections of choral works with Masterworks Press of Olympia, Washington, and was the editor for Paul Winter’s Earth Mass, published by Hal Leonard Music.
     Hickman is in his third season as conductor of Opera Wilmington, having led performances of Verdi’s Rigoletto in 2015 and Mozart’s Così fan tutte in 2016.
