Kirsten Olson, Interim Music Director, was born in rural Wisconsin, and got her first “church job” at age thirteen. Kirsten’s father, a family doctor and choir director, realized that he was being called out of church to deliver babies, set broken bones, etc. and therefore was not dependable, so Kirsten took his place on the organ bench. After switching majors from pre-med to music, she graduated with music degrees from University of Wisconsin – Madison, Valparaiso University, Westminster Choir College in Princeton, and Temple University. She specializes in teaching sacred music to all ages-- “from womb to tomb” --and secular music, too. Finally, for something a little different, Kirsten plays keyboards in a rock band that was formed at a church where she worked (St. Peter’s Lutheran in North Wales.) The band has been together for over two decades!
