The glory of life is not so much in formal achievement, but in “the beauty of the process.”    –  Debbie Greaves (1994)

The Greatland Sounds Chorus, Fairbanks, Alaska, is proud to announce that we have a new director. After many years as director, Patti Gallagher, stepped down at the end of August 2022. Many thanks to Patti for her years of fine service to our chorus. Starting in September, Dr. Kirsten Blair took the directorship, for a trial
period to get the chorus through Christmas. We are happy to announce that she enjoyed her first taste of directing barbershop and has signed a contract and will remain as our director.
Kirsten is a native of the Fairbanks area, having graduated from North Pole High School, where she was first introduced to barbershop by her choir director, Bruce Hanson, with the aid of a quartet from our chorus. She went on to received her Bachelor of Music (2012) and Masters of Music in Voice Performance (2015) from the University Of Alaska Fairbanks. In May of 2022 She recieied her Doctoral of Musical Arts in Applied Voice, from Arizona State University, Phoenix, Az.
Currently Kirsten takes students for private voice lessons. She is the president of FLOT (Fairbanks Light Opera Theater) and can now add to that, Director of The Greatland Sounds.
