Hide Profile

Norman Luboff, born in Chicago in 1917, was a well-respected and multi-faceted musician. His career in choral music as composer, arranger, conductor, singer, recording artist, teacher, publisher, and promoter was significant in promoting interest in choral music among the public as well as both professional and amateur musicians. In Hollywood, Luboff composed and arranged music for television including the Bell Telephone Hour, Dinah Shore Show, Ford Star Jubilee, the Jerry Lewis Show, and for more than 80 motion pictures. Among the song lyricists with whom he worked the names of Alan Bergman and Marilyn Keith are particularly noted. The Norman Luboff Choir, organized during the 1950s, exposed millions of listeners to a wide gamut of music ranging from Renaissance polyphony to the characteristic Luboff arrangements of folk and popular songs. He died in North Carolina in 1987.
