Music Director

Dr. Jane Andrews

Being at King of Glory has been a joy for me. I like the colleagues with whom I work and the musicians are open, kind, and fun. Colorado people have always seemed so “down to earth” and that is very refreshing. I feel very fortunate to have worked in music for almost fifty years. I am also very grateful that I had the opportunity to seek and earn a doctorate and become Professor Emeritus in my retirement. Oh, the things I learned were so interesting and I appreciated learning them so much…it was a treat!  My music mentor once told me I was one of the most curious people he had ever met and as I have matured I know he really did know me. You might think that once you have directed a choir, then all choirs are pretty much the same and you just continue to recycle the past experience. Nothing could be further from the truth because each musical group has its own personality, needs, and strengths.
