Taylor Gudbrandson is a vocal music educator and Mezzo-Soprano in the West Michigan area. After receiving her Bachelor of Music Education in 2013 from Central Michigan University, Taylor taught Middle School and High School Choir at Otsego Public Schools for seven years as well as serving as the Bella Voce director for the Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus- an organization which she sang in herself as a growing musician. KCC was an integral experience that inspired her to become the choral director that she is today. During the 2020-2021 season, Ms. Gudbrandson stepped back from the public schools to take on the role of Artistic/Executive Director for the Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus. She is eager to carry on the legacy of excellent choral music while also stressing the importance of community and togetherness that choir can provide. In addition to working with hundreds of students each year, Taylor enjoys performing onstage at The Kalamazoo Civic Theatre as well as other featured solo work in the area. Taylor resides in Parchment with her cellist husband, Ben, and their son Barrett.
