Members of BYU's Men's Chorus, under the direction of Rosalind Hall.

Rosalind Hall is the current director of the BYU Men's Chorus and BYU Concert Choir.

Hall is a native of Wales. She was educated at the University of London, the University of Edinburgh and London's Royal Academy of Music. She received a bachelors of music degree from the Royal Academy in 1977.

Hall came to the US in 1989 to study at Brigham Young University (BYU). While she was a grad student she also directed the BYU Women's Chorus. Hall received her Masters of music degree in 1993 from BYU. From 1992-1999 she was chair of the music department at Waterford School. She has been the director of the BYU Men's Chorus and Concert Choir since Mack Wilberg became an assistant director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the fall of 1999. In addition to conducting these two choirs at BYU, Hall teaches undergraduate courses in choral conducting and graduate courses in choral literature at the BYU College of Fine Arts and Communications.

From 2001-2011 Hall never once missed a day of work for being sick (though, she did miss a few days in January 2012 due to food poisoning). She attributes her miraculous record of health to her own vivacity, positive attitude, choral students, and her consistent use of Listerine for its antiseptic, preventative capability.

In 2012, Hall was ranked as one of the 300 best professors in the nation by the Princeton Review.

In 2013, Hall was #4 on the list of Highest Rated Professors on RateMyProfessor.com.[1]
