Weber, Amanda

Amanda's recent focus has been the Voices of Hope, a women’s prison choir at the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee. Founded by Weber in October 2015, the choir has grown from 15 to 50 singers and collaborated with over 200 musicians from the Twin Cities metro area. Her interest in using music as a tool for social justice grew through her work at Luther Place Memorial Church in Washington, DC, where she founded Bethany’s Women of Praise, a choir for homeless women, in 2008. In addition to her work with marginalized populations, she is active as a conductor, singer, pianist, and composer. She currently serves as the Interim Director of Choral Ministries at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis. Amanda received her BA in Music and Art from Luther College, her Master of Music Degree in Choral Conducting at the Yale School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music, and her Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Minnesota.
