Assistant Director and Collaborative Artist for VocalEssence Singers Of This Age
Gavin Berg joined VocalEssence in 2017 as Collaborative Artist for the inaugural year of VocalEssence Singers Of This Age, where he works as accompanist and assistant conductor under G. Phillip Shoultz, III. As a pianist and organist, Gavin is currently the Artist-in-Residence at Good Samaritan United Methodist Church. He also has recorded several solo piano albums, and is a featured performer throughout the region. As a choir director, Gavin has focused on working with children and youth from preschool to high school in an effort to make music accessible to all, and advocating healthy, lifelong singing care and technique in all musical genres. He says access to piano lessons at a young age changed his life, and he believes that same access to music has the potential to change and enhance the lives of so many others.

He also advises the University of Minnesota chapter of Beta Theta Pi Fraternity, and volunteers to facilitate Beta leadership and personal development conferences on national level. Gavin and his partner, Joe, live in Golden Valley with their dogs Arlo and Beatrice.
