After a several months long national search, the Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus is excited to announce that Taylor Gudbrandson has been named the new Artistic director.
Mrs. Gudbrandson is the past Director of Choirs at Otsego Public Schools where she was recognized by her peers as Educator of the Year in 2019. Her public school choirs participated in the Michigan School Vocal Music choral and ensemble festivals with great success. She was also the director of the Bella Voce Choir of The Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus. A graduate of Central Michigan University, Mrs Gudbrandson studied vocal music education with a choral focus. She brings a well-rounded skill set being both a strong conductor and a passionate advocate for children’s choruses. She is an alumni to the program itself and brings in many new and exciting ideas!
Mrs. Gudbrandson is also known for her musical theater work at The Kalamazoo Civic Theater and the Kindelberger Park summer musical productions.
She has officially assumed the role of Artistic Director following the retirement of long time Artistic Director Fred Sang.
Once again, Congratulations to Taylor Gudbrandson, we cannot wait to work with you in this new capacity and see the direction you take us in!
