Wim van Gerven (Tenor, Choral Conductor)

Born:
Died: November 1, 2008

The Dutch tenor and choral conductor, Wim van Gerven, was for many years, a member of the Nederlands Kamerkoor while it was under the direction of Felix de Nobel. In 1959, he founded the Schola Cantorum Amsterdam (SCA) as the Gregorian Chant Choir for the University of Amsterdam's Roman Catholic student community, and was its conductor. From 1963 to 1967 Gerven gave musical direction to both the Gregorian Chant Choir and the choir performing the new rite. He left the Schola after an unfortunate internal dispute at the end of 1993.
