Denise Tewes


I have been involved in the music ministry and directing choirs at Messiah for 22 years. Wednesday evenings you will find me at Messiah rehearsing the adult choir, children’s choir and occasionally a ladies choir.

My previous education includes a bachelors degree in vocal performance at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, MN, a master’s degree in choral conducting from the University of Nebraska-Omaha, and more recently, a master’s certificate in songwriting through Berklee School of Music’s online program. 

My husband, Doug, and I enjoy spending time with our family of six children and extended family. I also enjoy reading, cooking, singing, song writing, hiking and traveling to God’s beautiful creations.
