Lydia Lane Stout

Lydia Lane Stout is currently the Children's Music Director and Worship Associate at Glenview Community Church. She recently received her masters in Choral Conducting from Michigan State University. While working toward her degree, Lydia directed a church choir at FCUCC Grand Ledge and two children’s choirs through the Michigan State University Community Music School, where she launched a free satellite choir program in Lansing public schools.

After graduating from Oberlin in 2012, Lydia joined the Chicago Children’s Choir as an In-School Conductor, directing eighteen children's choirs around the city. While in Chicago, she founded and directed common pulse, a professional vocal ensemble, as well as the Admiral Chorus, an ensemble for retired singers living at The Admiral at the Lake. In addition to her conducting positions, Lydia sang with Peregrine Vocal Ensemble and Wicker Park Choral Singers.

Lydia and her husband live in their Logan Square home and music studio with their cats, Wrinkle and Time. Outside of GCC, Lydia can be found directing choirs at the Youth Choral Theater of Chicago, teaching private lessons, singing in mirabai, nurturing common pulse, practicing yoga, and taking too many pictures of her cats.
