Choral Director
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Paul Wigley as the director of the Dakota Valley Symphony Chorus. Paul’s enthusiasm for choral music is well-known to many our audiences who have rejoiced in our collaborations with his choirs over the past ten years.

Paul holds a B.S. in Music Education from the University of Minnesota, and a Masters of Music, music education with choral emphasis from the University of Northern Iowa. Paul recently retired from teaching choral music, advanced placement music theory, and class guitar at Lakeville (MN) North High School.

Under the direction of Mr. Wigley, the Lakeville North High School Chorale toured extensively in Europe, with tours including Great Britain, Italy, Austria, Spain, Germany, Czech Republic, and France. With 34 years of shaping young minds to the importance of music, Paul has built extensive repertoire from early music, to standard choral repertoire, to barbershop and jazz. Many of his former students have gone off to be professional musicians in their own right and some of his former students may very well join us.

Please join us in welcoming Paul to our artistic staff.
