Anne Klus, Conductor
This is the fourth performance at Carnegie Hall for Anne Klus, Director of St. Paul Academy and Summit School (SPA) Choral Activities. This reflects not only the excellence of the choirs but also Ms. Klus’ success as a teacher who loves nothing more than “to see students connect with the spirit and intricate discipline of the musical arts. I wanted to teach since I was five years old, and decided to concentrate on choral music as the result of my opportunities in high school to conduct.” Ms. Klus has brought both passion and talent to her leadership of the SPA Middle and Upper School choir programs since 1988. She also directs the vocal and instrumental music for the Upper School spring musicals and conducts the SPA Community Chorale, entering its 25th season. Ms. Klus sang professionally with the Dale Warland Singers. She earned her B.A. in music education from Augsburg College and is a member of the American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota, the National Association for Music Education, and the Minnesota Music Educators Association.
