Indiana Community Choir

The Indiana Community Choir provides individuals in the Indiana region the opportunity to sing and perform great choral literature not typically accessible to choirs in a rural region.

It is also the opportunity to learn choral and singing techniques from a master singer, conductor, and music teacher with a 20-year background in vocal pedagogy, choral and solo song literature, and experience in popular styles and musical theater.

Artistic Director and Conductor*

Jon Erik Schreiber

*Note: Jon Erik Schreiber will be taking a sabbatical during the fall 2018 semester. We’re pleased to announce that the choral director for Indiana Senior High School, Scott Salser, will be leading the Indiana Community Choir in Jon Eriks absence. Salser has completed nearly 30 years as a highly successful music teacher, with most of them at Indiana HS. His students are among the best at the district, region, and state levels, and he is a sought-after conductor for various festivals. We look forward to his leadership this fall with the Indiana Community Choir!
