Meet Our New Director!

Martin Pazdioch has over 20 years experience as a choir director, conductor, soloist, section leader, pianist, organist, and liturgical musician.  He was a member of the voice faculty at Dominican University, sang with the Chicago Symphony Chorus for 19 seasons, has performed on five Grammy Award-winning recordings, and has vast experience in opera, concert, recital, musical theatre, and in the recording studio.  As well as teaching voice at area high schools, colleges, and in studio settings, he maintains a standard of musical excellence while working with people of all musical abilities and uses his knowledge and skills to help volunteer choristers improve their vocal skills while having fun.  Obviously, he is well suited to work with our group and is excited about working with a non-auditioned group of men and women who love to sing, and we are delighted and excited to have him as our new director!

One tiny detail, Chuck. I formerly was on the faculty at Dominican University, but I have since moved on to another position. Just wanted to clarify that. Thanks for the great job on condensing my ridiculously long bio. Can't wait for our next rehearsal! -Martin
