Musical Director

John JantziDr. John Jantzi

The Gleemen are fortunate to have had John Jantzi as our director since 2002. We are delighted with the energy and musicality he brings to our group.

John’s musical experience is varied and extensive. He worked for over a decade in Europe as Musical Director in the United States Army Music and Theater Branch as well as Director of Music Programs with U.S. Army Chapels in Germany.

John is also a fine organist and accompanist having performed with such local groups as the Oregon Bach Festival and Oregon Mozart Players.

Currently, in addition to his teaching duties at the University of Oregon School of Music, John is Chorus Master for the Eugene Opera Company.
