    I'm new to Missoula Sentinel this year, but not new to the state of Montana!!

    I grew up in Lewistown, and graduated from Fergus County High School.  I had amazing teachers and have wonderful memories of those years.  I participated in Advanced Choir, Choraliers, Band, Jazz Band, Thespians, and Speech and Drama Team.  I was fortunate to participate in All State Honor's Choir, All Northwest Honor's Choir as well as District and State Solo and Ensemble Festivals each year.  It is my goal to help the student vocal musicians at Sentinel experience many of those things as well!

    I went to college at the University of Indianapolis and completed my masters and doctoral degrees at Indiana University in choral conducting and vocal performance.

    The first 25 years of my career was spent in church music and the last five teaching both on the college and high school level.

    My greatest thrill is hearing a vocal ensemble come together as one unit and make incredible music!

    This will be a challenging year due to all that's going on with the covid-19 virus.  I'm attaching a letter from the disctrict music supervisor that explains in detail how we'll be working to make things as safe as possible for every student involved in our program.  Please look it over.

    We are going to make some great music here at Missoula Sentinel!  I'm looking forward to meeting all of my students and parents.  

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to me either by phone or email.


    All my best,

    Dr. Douglas Olson
