“Conversations From St. Norbert College”

April 2017
Dudley Birder, producer and artistic director of Summer Music Theatre and musical director of the Dudley Birder Chorale, is the guest on the April “Conversations From St. Norbert College” television show hosted by Kevin Quinn, founding dean of the Donald J. Schneider School of Business & Economics at St. Norbert. They will discuss Birder’s long career in music at St. Norbert College and beyond. 

Birder, who turned 90 in March, began his teaching career at St. Norbert College in 1958, retiring from his academic duties in 1993. Birder founded Summer Music Theatre at St. Norbert in 1962 and has served as producer, director and/or musical director for all of the 96 musicals presented since that time. Birder will step away from music theatre after this summer’s performances, but he will continue to direct the Dudley Birder Chorale of St. Norbert College, which he founded in 1974. 

The college has awarded Birder the President’s Medal “for his dedication to his art and service to the community.” Dudley Birder Hall, a first-class music facility on campus, is named in his honor.
