Clif Hardin is currently working full-time as Music Director at River Road
Unitarian Church in Bethesda, Maryland. The highly accomplished adult and
children's choirs at River Road have been an inspiration to him and have
provided a wonderful opportunity for his development as a conductor and
Clif has taught at Montgomery College and has been involved in many
Washington area theater productions. He holds degrees from Oberlin
Conservatory of Music (piano performance, studying with Peter Takacs), the
Shepherd School of Music at Rice University (MM in choral conducting,
studying with Samuel Jones), and has recently completed his doctorate in
choral studies at the University of Maryland, (working with Paul Traver). He
also served as pianist and conductor of Singers for all Seasons, the
outreach chorus of the Choral Arts Society of Washington, Norman Scribner,
conductor. In several months, Clif hopes to finish editing his
Requiem and have it made available to a wide audience.
Clif finds life's greatest meanings through writing music, experiencing
music with others, running, and most of all, being with his family.
