Welcome to the JLMS Choir page. My name is Doug Arendt and I have been the director of choirs here since the 1999-2000 school year. I am excited to work with our students as they learn how to make friendships and wonderful music together. 

I enjoy sharing my musical expertise throughout Wisconsin as a WSMA adjudicator, as a guest clinician and conductor for local and regional choral festivals and recently completed a 10 year engagement with the Wisconsin School Music Association Middle-Level Honors Program. 

I hold a bachelor’s degree in music education from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and two master’s degrees from Alverno College. One of my master's degrees is in Administrative Leadership, which I now use on a daily basis in my role as Associate Principal here at John Long.
