CDH Choir Department


Mr. Isaac Lovdahl

Isaac 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 choir director at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in St. Paul, and sings with the Twin-Cities based professional choir, 'The Singers - Minnesota Choral Artists'. Lovdahl is 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 another stupendous year of learning and music making with his students!
