 ABOUT THE CONDUCTORS

NANCY HOPKIN was raised in the Bay Area of California, where she began accompanying in church at the age of 9 and directing children's choirs when she was 12.  While studying at BYU she was privileged to be a member of the A Capella Choir (now BYU Singers) and graduated with her Bachelors degree in Choral Education (1978).  She has choreographed and directed several musicals for students K-12.  Upon relocating to Rexburg, ID, she formed and directed all-boys and all-girls choirs (grades 3 - 9), which were honored to perform in productions at Rick's College/BYU-Idaho and a personal concert for the Governor of Idaho.
Nancy was invited to join the adjunct faculty of BYU-I (2002-2010) to teach music core classes, and Women's Glee, which she thoroughly enjoyed.  Further skills in music teaching were acquired when she became Kodaly Certified (giving her a K-12 endorsement) in 2008.  Since then, her mantra has become, "I teach people; what I do with them is Music."
She is the mother of six nearly perfect children and 4 joyful grandchildren.  She moved to Salt lake in January of 2013, and is deeply honored to have been asked to join SLVA.  Being one of the directors of the Young choral Artists is icing on the cake!
