About Amy Kaiser

Director of the St. Louis Symphony Chorus since 1995, Amy Kaiser is one of the country’s leading choral directors. She was only the second director in the Chorus’ 46-year history. Over the past 27 years, she has prepared the Chorus for more than 260 concerts, including performances with the SLSO at Carnegie Hall. She led the chorus under four SLSO Music Directors: Leonard Slatkin, Hans Vonk, David Robertson, and Stéphane Denève.  Amy’s remarkable tenure included performances of choral favorites like Handel’s Messiah and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Britten’s Peter Grimes, concert operas, oratorios, movies, and much more. She regularly served as a pre-concert speaker for the SLSO and presented popular classes for the Symphony Lecture Series and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.
