Our Master Director

 Sacramento Valley Chorus is proud to introduce


Dede Nibler!

I cannot remember a time in my life that I was not interested and involved with music and singing. Professionally, I was a music teacher and school administrator, serving Fresno Unified School District in Fresno, CA for 34 years after teaching for 4 years in the mid-west.  I am originally from Chicago, Illinois and received my Bachelor’s of Science degree (Voice and Piano) from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.  My Masters in Administration/Supervision is from California State, Fresno..  

I am a proud member of the Sweet Adeline International organization and am currently the Master Director of the Sacramento Valley Chorus in Sacramento after having proudly served as the Master Director of the Fresno area barbershop women’s chorus, Voices United, for 33 years.  Quartet singing, the Sweet Adeline International Faculty, Young Women in Harmony, arranging music, coaching and teaching occupy much of my life when I am not directing. And I have a loving husband, Tim, four adult children, five grandkids - and a black cat named Snow.


I recently retired as musical director/vocal director of New Wrinkles Senior Musical Showcase in Fresno, CA, a position I held for the past 13 years. The members of the cast are a perfect example of how staying active in the arts can keep a person youthful, involved and surrounded by friends. Music and singing can last a lifetime.
