Artistic Director

Leland G. Spindler

Mr Spindler has been working with religious ensembles for nearly 20 years. At a very young age, he began conducting his own congregation’s choir in Eugene, OR. Later, whilst living in southern France, Mr. Spindler began an interfaith choir that toured many of the great religious spaces in the region. Upon his return to the United States, he continued his tradition of bringing fine religious choral music to the populous of congregants from various denominations. In Utah, Mr. Spindler formed a community Easter choir which performed in the various chapels, the Provo Tabernacle, the BYU Madsen Recital Hall, and BYU De Jong Concert Hall. This Easter choir ultimately evolved into what is now the Lux Singers. Mr. Spindler has a great passion for the religious tradition of choral music and its role throughout history. He is a spitfire conductor who does not accept mediocrity from his choir members, and it shows in his performances.

Mr. Spindler has sung in the LCC Chamber Choir, Cascade Barbershop Chorus, Toulon Opera Chorus, as well as the BYU Men’s Chorus, BYU Concert Choir and BYU Singers of Brigham Young University. As a master’s student in choral conducting, he has conducted the BYU Chorale, BYU Women’s Chorus, Concert Choir and French Choir. As a conductor, he has studied under the hands of Dr. Ronald Staheli, Rosalind Hall, Jean Applonie, Dr. Jerold Ottley, Todd Zimmerman, and Dr. Richard Wagner.

In addition to his work in the choral arts, Mr Spindler is the owner and executive chef of Les Frères Gourmands Catering Group, an active French translator and interpreter, and a published arranger, composer, and writer.
