Dr. Andrew Crane

Andrew Crane joined the BYU faculty in 2015, where his main duties include conducting the Brigham Young University Singers and teaching courses in the graduate conducting curriculum. Previous to this appointment, he served for four years as Director of Choral Activities at East Carolina University, and six years in the same position at California State University, San Bernardino. He is also the former choral director at Provo High School.

Choirs under his direction have appeared by invitation at multiple state, regional, and national conferences of the American Choral Directors Association, National Association for Music Education, and National Collegiate Choral Organization. Recent examples include the 2019 ACDA national conference in Kansas City, the 2020 Utah Music Educators Association conference in St. George, and the 2020 Western Division ACDA conference in Salt Lake City. In 2022 he will conduct the BYU Singers at the Western Division ACDA conference in Long Beach, CA.

Additionally, Crane enjoys a career as a professional solo and ensemble tenor, having appeared with such groups as Seraphic Fire, Santa Fe Desert Chorale, Yale Choral Artists, Spire Chamber Ensemble, Carnegie Hall Festival Chorus, and many others.

Dr. Crane is active as a conductor of honor choirs, clinician, adjudicator and presenter. He currently serves as Past President of Utah ACDA, and recently completed a four-year term on the national ACDA Standing Committee for Composition Initiatives. In addition, Crane curates a choral series under his name through Walton Music. He and his wife Casandria (also a BYU alumna) reside in American Fork, UT and are the parents of four children.
