The choirs are directed by Zachary Lindquist who hails from Chanhassen, Minnesota.  He received his Bachelors of Music from Michigan State University and has been directing choirs for three years.  This is his first year at Hayes Middle School. He loves all things music and is constantly inspired by his students’ creativity, humor and passion for singing.
Mrs. Carmen Karkau has accompanied the Hayes choirs for 8 years.  She is a graduate of GLHS and holds a B.M. degree from Capital University.  She also teaches piano, is a church organist/pianist/Accompanist at Emmanuel Lutheran Church and accompanies many band and choir students for Solo and Ensemble.   Mrs. Karkau loves working at the Middle School program at Hayes.
