Birder retired from his academic duties in 1993, but remains active directing St. Norbert College Music Theatre and the Dudley Birder Chorale. During his tenure at the college, he founded and for 33 years directed the Chamber Singers and the Swinging Knights. Local audiences will remember the Chamber Singers’ annual Madrigal Dinner, which traditionally opened the Christmas season in Green Bay, and the annual Swinging Knights springtime Pop Pourri, which celebrated the conclusion of each school year. The college has awarded him the President’s Medal for his dedication to his art and service to the community.
