The University of Louisville Cardinal Singers(Louisville, Kentucky, U.S.A.) was founded in 1970 under the name University Singers as an outreach organization for the University of Louisville. Dr. Hatteberg began conducting the Singers in 1997 and changed the name of the ensemble to Cardinal Singers in 1998. The Singers continue their outreach mission locally, nationally, and internationally, offering workshops, performing at choral conventions, festivals, and symposia, and competing on the international stage. Recent festival highlights include performances at the Seoul Oratorio Festival (Korea 2019), the Xi’an International Choral Festival (Xi’an, China, 2017), the 13th China International Choral Festival (Beijing, China, 2016), the Taipei International Choral Festival (Taiwan, 2015, 2010), the Singapore International Choral Festival (2015), the Cuba/United States Choral Symposium (Havana, 2012) Recent competition performances include the Magdeburg Internationales Chorfest (Germany 2022), the 11th International Choir Competition Zadar (Croatia, 2018), the Harmonie Festival (Germany 2017), the Yeosu International Choir Competition (Korea, 2013), the Vietnam International Choir Competition (Xi’ An 2013), the Marktoberdorf International Chamber Choir Competition, the Harmonie Festival, and the 9th Internationale Chortage Mainhausen (Germany, 2011).
