Choir Director - Kristi Lyn Klein
I wanted to be a musician from age 5. At age 11 I sang my first church solo "Let There Be Peace On Earth". I went to KU to study music education but switched to Vocal Performance my sophomore year. I took graduate level conducting lessons to reach my goal of being a church choir director. My first church job was as the children's choir director at Good Shepherd. I quickly became the director of music at Good Shepherd. I became a Methodist shortly after my daughter Lauren was born and started working at St. Paul's UMC. 22 months after I had Lauren I had Scott and went to work at Church of the Servant which soon closed : I worked for Ward Parkway Presbyterian but missed United Methodist Church. I am now happy to be the Director of Music at Indian Heights! I love music but a close second is coaching. With my husband I coach 5th grade girls basketball, 3rd grade boys basketball, and 5th grade girls softball. In addition I am Lauren's Girl Scout Leader!
Piano/Organist – Aine Wendler
I am a busy pianist working as an accompanist for vocalists and instrumentalists, as well as performing for nursing homes and assisted living centers, weddings, and funerals.
I joyously share my life with my husband, David, a guitarist and luthier (guitar builder and stringed instrument repair professional) who holds a U.S. patent in sound amplification pick-up systems and has designed and builds, to custom order, his own line of guitars, basses, mandolins, mandocellos, and violins; my darling 16 year-old stepdaughter, Jessie, the 72-pound “baby” puppy, Evangeline, and Bagatelle (Baggy), my sweet, funny, and imperious cat. I am loving, and feeling great joy, in my work at Indian Heights UMC.
