Formerly on the music staff of The International School of Brussels, Maryland native Dr. Jo-Anne van der Vat-Chromy was most recently the Vocal Music Director at the American School of The Hague, in The Netherlands. Her work at ASH included directing six choirs and co-directing two concert bands, as well as teaching Rock Music History, Musical Theatre and directing the fifty-five voice ASH Community Choir. Jo-Anne was also the founder/music director of Het Davidkoor, a subsidized thirty voice Dutch women’s choir who recently celebrated their eighteenth year of holistic music making. From 2008 – 2010, van der Vat-Chromy served as Vocal Music Director at Tallahassee Community College, where she directed the Tallahassee Civic Chorale, and Illuminare, the TCC Select Vocal Ensemble.

During her career in Europe, Dr. van der Vat-Chromy was active in AMIS – The Association for Music in International Schools. Through AMIS, she was the invited guest conductor for three international choral festivals - the 2002 Boys Treble Choir Festival in Budapest Hungary, the 2005 Girls Treble Choir Festival in Warsaw, Poland and the 2007 Mixed Choir Festival in Singapore.

In the summer of 2010, she completed her doctorate in Music Education/Choral Conducting at Florida State University in Tallahassee Florida. Her research interests include the kinesthetic connections in conducting pedagogy, choral acoustic music measurement, curriculum and assessment strategies for middle and high school choirs, and the sociological impact of choral cultures on student learning.
