MATTHEW SHEPARD | Youth Choir Director
Matthew brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the youth staff. Not only has he been directing the youth choir for over 10 years, he also holds masters degrees in conducting as well as vocal pedagogy. Originally from Kansas City, with his undergraduate degree at William and Jewell, and Masters at UMKC, Shep knows the area like none other. And, let’s be honest, he is simultaneously the handsomest and cutest member of the youth staff. And hairiest. Hands down. Not even a competition.
