Meet the board
Heather began her term in Fall of 2019. She holds a Masters degree in Choral Conducting, as well as an undergraduate degree in Music Education (choral emphasis), both from Brigham Young University. She has had over 10 years experience teaching singing to those from elementary through university levels. One such experience was being a teacher in the Arts Bridge program, where Mrs. Christiansen taught children subjects such as social studies and science through the medium of music at Foxhollow Elementary. She has run her private piano and vocal studio in Utah Valley teaching over 200 students.
Heather firmly believes in the ability music has to bring people together and its power to enrich lives. She wishes the arts, and choral music in-particular, can be more easily reached by those in the community. Heather is honored to be working with the Mapleton Chorale, and is confident this is a venue that will bring choral music to the hearts of its listeners.
In her spare time, Heather enjoys decorating her house, planting gardens (in short, making things beautiful), and playing with her two adorable daughters and incredible husband, Matthew.
