Dr. Chuck Livesay has directed choral groups at SAU for over four decades, leading memorable performances for the Hanging of the Greens celebration each Christmas.

He relishes the challenge of matching his teaching techniques to fit the individual needs of his students.

Chuck credits the people and culture of SAU for his longtime loyalty to the university. “The Christian love and commitment to others is so immediately apparent when one sets foot on our campus.”
