When Kevin Riehle stepped down as artistic director of Cantare Houston, which he founded in 2003, the choir's board of directors set about finding a replacement. They didn't have to look very far to find Amy Solberg.

Director of choirs at Bellaire High School, Amy holds a Master of Music degree in choral conducting from the University of Houston and a Bachelor of Music degree in piano and choral education from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, where she was a member of the world-renowned Concordia Choir under the famous Rene Clausen.
