Welcome Mr. Isaac Lovdahl
Isaac Lovdahl is elated to be starting his first year here at Cretin-Derham Hall!
Lovdahl graduated from Concordia College in 2015 with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Music Education. Prior to his appointment at Cretin-Derham, Lovdahl taught high school choir and middle school music in the Sartell-St. Stephen School District (ISD 748), and directed the choirs at Celebration Lutheran Church.
Along with his duties as an educator, he is also the Bass Section Leader/Soloist at St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral in Minneapolis, and sings with the Twin-Cities based professional choir, 'The Singers - Minnesota Choral Artists'. Lovdahl is also an avid choral composer, with pieces available from a number of music publishers, or via his own website. Through the study of the choral art, Lovdahl hopes to instill a passion for excellence and beauty in his students, and seeks to foster their talents and creativity in a sincere way. It is of the utmost importance that we always remember Oscar Ghiglia's thoughts on music: "When music is loved, it lives."
He is looking forward to a stupendous year of learning and music making with his students!
