The choral director search committee is pleased to announce that Ingrid Ladendorf has been selected as our new Associate Director of Choirs for Children and Youth.
Ingrid has been the director of the Joyful Noise Choir and has directed numerous Pageants and Chancel Dramas since arriving at Nassau in 2010, and we are looking forward to her work with children and youth of all ages.
She holds degrees from Ithaca College and the Teachers College of Columbia University, is a Program Director and Childhood Advisor at the Diller-Quaile School of Music in Manhattan, and is an Adjunct Professor in music education at The College of New Jersey.
Ingrid will formally start on August 1, though you will certainly see her around this summer putting the plans together for an exciting first year with Carol Choir, Choir 345, the Middle School Choir, and Cantorei.
The committee was impressed not only by Ingrid’s considerable wealth of experience and creative teaching technique, but also by her extraordinary spiritual depth and her love for Christ’s church.
We are delighted to have found such a wonderful individual as Ingrid to be our new director for our children and youth!
