    LuAnn Holden, Associate Professor of Music Education at Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn., teaches vocal and general music methods courses and supervises student teachers. During the academic terms from Fall 2006 through Spring 2011, Holden served the university in an administrative role as Chair of the Department of Vocal Music. Fourteen years’ experience teaching music in K-12 public schools provides a basis for her collegiate teaching, as well as her work as Artistic Director of the Chattanooga Girls Choir.

    As part of Lee University's outreach into the community, Lee supports Holden's efforts as Artistic Director of the Chattanooga Girls Choir. Now in her ninth season with the organization, Holden provides the artistic vision for this non-profit, five-tier community choir with an average membership of 150 singers from throughout the greater Chattanooga area. In addition to overseeing the musical aspects of the organization, she conducts the Concert Choir and the annual Tour Choir—both with auditioned singers ranging from seventh to 12th grade.

    Other professional activities include presenting at state and regional conferences on topics relating to choral rehearsal techniques, such as visual imagery, critical thinking and assessment. Holden frequently conducts state and regional honor choirs, adjudicates choral festivals, serves as a clinician for choir workshops and writes choral music reviews for publication in the Choral Journal. She was a member of the Atlanta Symphony Chorus, which at that time was conducted by the legendary Robert Shaw.

    Holden earned the Master of Music Education degree with an emphasis in Choral Music from Georgia State University. She received the Bachelor of Music Education degree from Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia. Her professional memberships include American Choral Directors Association (ACDA), the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), Tennessee Music Educators Association (TMEA), East Tennessee Vocal Association (ETVA), Choristers Guild and Chorus America.
