In 1988, then Director of Music David A. Arcus led 40-minute rehearsals each Tuesday and Wednesday for the Divinity School Choir in York Chapel. According to Arcus, who now serves as chapel organist and associate university organist, he was followed as choir director by Grigg Fountain, Rodney Wynkoop (prior to his appointment at Duke Chapel), and Sue Klausmeyer.

Allan Friedman currently serves as assistant conductor and administrative coordinator of chapel music, which since completion of the Divinity School addition in 2005 has been housed in Goodson Chapel. Friedman (far right) directs the choir during the dedication for Opus 16, the new Goodson Chapel pipe organ.
