Roland Carter
Composer, arranger, conductor, pianist, scholar, researcher, teacher... the list of roles performed by UTC Holmberg Professor of American Music Roland M. Carter is never-ending. During his 23-year tenure at The University of Tennessee Chattanooga, Professor Carter conducted choirs, taught classes, accompanied recitals, arranged music, funded concerts, fostered inter-departmental productions, chaired the department, mentored and recruited students, and promoted affirmative action while at all times retaining the demeanor of a true professional.
To the greater Chattanooga community he has served as an advocate for the arts through his work with ArtsBuild (formerly Allied Arts of Greater Chattanooga), the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera Association, with a very special promotion of the great musical traditions of the African-American heritage, through his work with the The Chattanooga African American Museum, (now the Bessie Smith Cultural Center) and the Chattanooga Choral Society for the Preservation of African American, for which he served as music director for 23 years. Roland Carter, now professor emeritus, served as the Ruth S. Holmberg UC Foundation Professor of Music at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. From 1-89-1995, Carter served as Head of the Cadek Department of Music and Conservatory. Prior to returning to his hometown to accept this assignment, he served as Chair of the Department of Music at Hampton (Institute) University and director of its internationally acclaimed choirs for nearly a quarter century.
Carter's list of presentations during the past forty-eight years is impressive. It includes concerts in the nation’s most prestigious venues and with major orchestras; lectures, workshops, master classes, and festivals for schools, churches, colleges, and universities, and national associations throughout the country. His compositions and arrangements are performed by music organizations throughout the world. Carter has produced, appeared on, and served as consultant for national and international radio and television programs. He is in constant demand as guest conductor and lecturer and maintains a very active schedule of workshops and performances.
Carter's attainments are well documented. Critics throughout the world have hailed his excellence in the choral arts, and he has received numerous awards and honors for his outstanding achievements in choral music. For his notable contributions to the performance and preservation of African American music, Carter's biography and list of compositions are included in Our Musical Heritage, a catalog published jointly by Carl Fischer Music and the National Association of Negro Musicians; his bio also appears in International Dictionary of Black Composers and the soon to be released updated edition of The New Grove Dictionary of American Music. He has received national awards from, and has been recognized by the National Association of Negro Musicians, the National Black Music Caucus, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfornia, and Sigma Iota Theta Music Fraternities. He was selected to conduct the inaugural concert of the African American Music Series at Carnegie Hall. He has received the Tennessee Governors Arts Award and his contributions have been recognized by universities throughout the country including an honorary doctorate from Shaw University in Raleigh, NC.

For almost ten years, Carter has directed the Chancel Choir of the Cascade United Methodist Church, Atlanta. He is founder and CEO of MAR-VEL, a publisher specializing in music by African American composers and traditions.
