Morris Hayes

Morris Hayes had some harrowing moments during World War II, but would rather spend time telling you about the glee club he formed while overseas. As a life long choral director, Morris created several methods that have made him a well respected leader in the industry. He is also given credit for creating one of the finest choral departments in the country at the University of Wisconsin. He served as President of the American Choral Directors Association and even, in retirement, surrounded himself with music. In 1999, he and his wife Gladys became charter volunteers for the NAMM Foundation’s Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, CA.
