Christophe Heidbreder hails from the frozen plains of Minnesota, and has journeyed far to find a new home in the snowy state of Massachusetts.
From a young age, Christophe has been involved in choral singing. He has sung in choirs since elementary school at his home church, and discovered his passion for choral music in 8th grade at Mabel Boyter Choir Camp, where he learned that music can build community, evoke emotions, and bring people together in a unique way.
Christophe is a recent graduate of St. Olaf College, where he received his Bachelor of Music in Church Music. He studied conducting under Anton Armstrong and Christopher Aspaas, and studied voice with Jim McKeel. While at St. Olaf, he directed a weekly Morning Prayer Choir, started his own chamber choir, and sang in Cantorei under Jaime Bobb.
Today, Christophe is serving as the Minister of Music at The Congregational Church of Westborough, and is excited to take on this new musical adventure of directing Oure Pleasure Singers. He hopes to further develop their musical talents, collaborate with other ensembles, and help them grow as both a choir and a community.
