Dustin (Dusty) Morris is a teaching choir in Vicksburg Schools. He directs seven choirs at the middle and high schools that do two musicals a year. He lives in Vicksburg, Michigan with his wife, Hadley K’99.
Dusty describes his experience at Kalamazoo College
K prepared me well to be a choral director. Not only did I get the musical training I needed to begin my conducting/teaching career, but the liberal arts emphasis meant I also learned some history, language, philosophy and other things which have been very useful when explaining songs to my students. I can place the songs in their historical context, pronounce the foreign language texts and discuss the music’s cultural relevance thanks to K College.
