John Tebay

John Tebay began his career in 1981 as the director of choral activities at El Dorado High School in Placentia, California. He has been director of choral studies at Fullerton College in Southern California, since 1985. During that time, he has conducted the 110-voice Concert Choir, the Chamber Singers, the Collegiate Chorale, the Men’s Chorale, the Women’s Chorale, the Vocal Jazz Ensemble, and the song and dance troupe, Bravo.

Mr. Tebay’s choirs have performed throughout the United States and Canada. They have performed at ACDA, CASMEC, CMEA and NCCO Conventions, and they have been a guest choir in Mainland China, performing with the Beijing University Symphony and the Shanghai University Symphony. In addition, the choir has competed in the International Eisteddfod Choral Competition in Llangollen Wales, the Seghizzi International Choral Competition in Gorizia, Italy, and the Singkreis Porcia Spittal Choral Competition in Spittal, Austria. Mr. Tebay has conducted regional and all-state honor choirs, and has been a choral adjudicator, clinician and competition judge throughout the Western United States.

John began composing choral music in his late teens out of necessity to provide music for his church choir that was accessible and appropriate for the need. This practice continued with his high school choirs and then his college choirs. Today his choral pieces have been performed nationally and internationally for concerts, festivals, choral conventions and international choral competitions.
