Alexander Cave is a gifted choral musician, active as a choral conductor,
musical director, vocal teacher, arranger and talented singer in his own

high school students admitted to that prestigious ensemble.

Mr. Cave earned his Bachelor’s degree in choral conducting at Indiana
University (Bloomington). A lyric baritone, he studied voice with
Metropolitan Opera tenor, Charles Kullmann, and sang counter-tenor under the
direction of John White and Fiora Contino in select ensembles while at
Indiana University.

Mr. Cave has sung locally with the Boychoir of Ann Arbor, The Bach Chorale,
Vocal Arts Ensemble, and Measure for Measure. Founder and musical director
of The Geneva Convention and Third Millennium Chorale, he has performed
throughout the United States and Canada. In addition, he served as Director
