Dr. David Dehner has joined the Warrior family as our new Director of Fine Arts. Dr. Dehner is a nationally recognized Music Educator with extensive vocal, choral and music theory training. He brings over 30 years of performance coaching experience at both the university and high school levels. He has broad background in training vocalists, choirs, worship arts students and musical theater students for professional stages, conservatory and college entrance. He comes to us from Monte Vista Christian School in California, where he served as the Director of Vocal Arts training vocalists, choirs, worship arts students and musical theater students.
Dr. Dehner was recently presented by the Recording Academy and the GRAMMY Museum, the 2015 Music Educator Semi-Finalist and 2017 Music Educator Finalist Awards! Under his teaching graduates have been accepted into major conservatories and schools of music on scholarship. A few of Dr. Dehner’s student concerts included:
Beyond this Dr. Dehner is credited with having the first solo-high school performance at Carnegie and has taken his group to perform at the Vatican twice. Further, his program has taken top honors among all California schools, both public and private, for 12 of the last 15 years. We are so blessed to have him impact and train our CCS Warriors. For the fall of 2017 we are pleased to announce that in addition to his Fine Arts Director duties, he will also be teaching Vocal Technique and Chorale classes for our high school. Let’s make Dr. Dehner and his wife Ruth feel at home. Welcome to the Warrior family and welcome to San Antonio!
