Mrs. Jennifer Lindquist Koester has earned Bachelors degrees in Music Education and Flute Performance from Central Michigan University and a Masters of Music from the University of Western Carolina. She currently teaches General Music, Preschool-5th grade; instrumental and drama electives 6th-8th grade, and is the founding director of the Our Lady Star of the Sea Youth Chorale and Schola. Her passion is inspired by the desire to instill in each child the faith of the Catholic Church and a love for music and its inherent beauty. Last summer she married Mr. Koester and now enjoys the wonderful adventure of life. In her spare time Mrs. Koester can be found reading, walking, playing her flute, or spending time with her extended family at their cottage in Alpena.
Mr. Koester and I would like to thank the 2017-18 Youth Chorale members for singing at our wedding, the parents who made it possible, and those of you who were with us in thought and prayer!
