Farewell to Our Director, Search for the Next

As some of you already know, our beloved director, Scott Kvigne, has made the extremely difficult decision to step down from directing City of Lakes at the end of the year. Scott has been directing City of Lakes since 2009 and has taken us to winning many Northern Lights Region Six competitions, top 10 finalist placements at SAI International competitions, and achieving Master 700-level scores for the first time in chorus history!

We are incredibly grateful for Scott's leadership over the years and wholeheartedly support his decision to step down to pursue other endeavors. In addition to directing City of Lakes, Scott is involved in two other local choruses, one of which he directs, and he is also a sought-after coach. He has decided to take some well-deserved time to explore other interests in his life, some of which may not even be barbershop related! We are excited for him as he embarks on this new chapter and are grateful for the lasting impact he has made on our chorus.

With Scott leading us through International competition in October/November 2024, thankfully we have time to audition new director candidates and then be ready to hit the ground running after International. If you or anyone you know would be a good candidate to direct City of Lakes, please send us your resume. We are IMMEDIATELY SEEKING CHORUS DIRECTOR APPLICANTS for our chorus, City of Lakes, SAI’s 2018 8th place International medalists based in Minneapolis, MN. This paid position requires an experienced director with a passion for excellence and barbershop music! Apply immediately, begin duties in mid to late 2024.
