The Upper School Director of Choral Music at St. Anne’s-Belfield School is a dynamic and broadly involved music educator, serving the Upper School community in and beyond the classroom.

The exact number of classes and students the director teaches naturally will vary year by year based on student interest in the program. A typical schedule for the director includes 2 choral classes and 1-2 music theory or history classes. The AP music theory course is not always offered annually; course registration that yields fewer than 8 students will be reviewed by administration.

In addition to the aforementioned teaching duties, the Upper School Director of Choral Music serves as the musical coordinator for weekly Chapel services, the musical director of the winter musical production, the faculty leader of the two a cappella clubs and the organizer of A Cappella Fest, an annual event that features St. Anne’s-Belfield School’s a cappella groups and those from neighboring schools, including those from higher ed.
