Katie Fries

Lincoln Middle School

Teacher – Choir/General Music



Ms. Fries directs the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade concert choirs. She also directs the 9th Street Connection show choir and teaches 6th grade general music.

Moving back to the area where she grew up and found her love of music is a real thrill for Ms. Fries. Before moving back to La Crosse, she had the opportunity to work at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL as a Merchandise cast member for five months. Although making magic with Mickey Mouse was fun, she is excited to get back to teaching!

Ms. Fries graduated from Drake University (Des Moines, IA) with a Bachelor’s in Music Education, including training in vocal music, instrumental music, and musical theatre. Her professional memberships include National Association for Music Educators and the American Choral Directors Association.

In her spare time, Ms. Fries enjoys participating in community theatre productions both in La Crosse and at Appleseed Community Theatre in La Crescent, MN.
