The 2007-2008 season marked the debut of Jeff Wressell as the director of the Chorus. Mr. Wressell graduated in 1981 from Bethel College in St. Paul Minnesota with a degree in music education. Since then he has accumulated 26 years of experience as an instructor, freelance musician, educator, and choral director. In addition to directing the Chorus he is the choir director at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Fridley Minnesota and the choir director at Spring Lake Park High School where he directs three choirs. He is passionate about music and seeks to make it creative, fun, and meaningful for both the singers and those in the audience. He is building upon the high standards and solid foundation laid by his predecessor, Dr. Ed Eklof, who directed the Chorus for 37 years.
