About Ben Locke

Benjamin R. Locke directs the Kenyon College Chamber Singers , the Kenyon Community Choir and the Knox County Symphony. In recent years, Locke's work has centered around South Africa and the Libertas Choir, a mixed-race choral ensemble based near Capetown. He has served as guest conductor for the group while in Capetown, collected material for his College ensembles to perform, and helped to coordinate the Libertas Choir U.S. tour.
Locke is often given credit for reinvigorating Kenyon's music program since his arrival in 1984. He was a recipient of the College's Trustee Award for Distinguished Teaching in 1992.
