Music Director

Scott Lounsbury

Scott finds great joy in leading the Suncook Valley Chorale, which he’s done since September of 2001. A music teacher and chorus director in Belmont by day, Scott has also found success as a composer, lyricist, and poet. In the summer he can frequently be found either conducting or playing with the Cate Park Band on the bandstand on the shores of Wolfeboro Bay. He serves as the Mixed Chorus Manager for the New Hampshire Music Educators’ All State Music Festival, where he’s affectionately known as the “Bow Tie Guy.” Some of his other interests include photography, community theater, and being Grampa to his “grandogger,” Mookie, a yellow lab who lives in Maine with Scott’s son. It’s his passion for the process of working with amateur (“those who create from love”) singers, bringing them to a higher levels of musicianship and performance, and his love of his “Suncookies” that allow him to Sing for Joy.
