About Us:

Located 40 minutes from Glacier National Park, the Glacier High School choir program is a thriving choir program in Kalispell, Montana, known for its commitment to collaboration, community, and creativity in programming. The program includes five curricular choirs and two extra-curricular choirs (stipend included), with great community and administrative support. Recent professional collaborations include residencies with Jake Runestad, Ryan Main, and Ethan Sperry through the recently established “Composer Festival,” highlighting music of selected composers in concert with fellow excellent Montana high school choir programs. The annual holiday concert features over 200 student musicians sharing the stage in a combined effort with the full music department. This position offers the added benefit of collaborating with a highly supportive and collegial music staff both district AND state wide, creating an enjoyable and collaborative working environment. Though small, the Montana choral community is something truly special - supportive, encouraging, and not competitive as adjudicated festivals are not ranked. Colleagues and mentors are easily found among the ranks of the Montana choir directors. Glacier High School has an administrative team that is fully supportive of the music department, both in word and in deed.  Kalispell is located in the Northwest corner of Montana with easy access to any and all outdoor adventures. Hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, and more are a short drive away. Flathead Lake, Glacier National Park, and the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex top a long list of incredible outdoor recreation areas. See the Discover Kalispell website for more on the area.
