The hard work and dedication of the choir combined with the knowledge of Dr. Brett Robison, director of choral activities, has made the Waldorf Choir something spectacular. However, after two years of directing the Waldorf Choir, Dr. Robison will be saying goodbye to the University.

Dr. Robinson was 19 years old when he decided to become a choir director. He went through a soul-searching period for a couple of months and the only thing he looked forward to was the choir.

“I had an amazing choir teacher,” Robison said. “I felt that I should give other students the same experience I had.”

Robison has been a director of choirs and orchestras for the past 15 years.

“I want to spend more time with my family,” said Robison, “it’s been tough for me not to spend each and every day with them.”

Choir member Jaci Olson has been directed by Robison since last January.

“He’s very patient with us,” said Olson. “He’s a really good director. He cares about each and every member of the choir separately. I’m really going to miss him.”

Besides directing music, Robison enjoys spending time with his kids: a 15-year-old, 11-year-old and a 9-year-old. He also loves to golf when the weather is nice.

“I want the choir to keep the traditions alive.” said Robison. “Next fall will mark their 100 year anniversary. I hope the seniors and myself finish the year off well.”
