Dr. Michael Huff, conductor of Utah Voices, is an amazing choral conductor and arranger. We are pleased that he is publishing with HolySheetMusic.com.
Utah Voices was created by a handful of dedicated, hard-working people who truly love to sing. It is the culmination of the dreams and united vision of individuals who are passionate about making music. We desire to provide a unique and fulfilling musical opportunity to those who sing with us as well as those for whom we perform.
We will strive to ensure that Utah Voices has a lasting position in our community and in the wonderful world of choral singing. In the beautiful words of the talented composer Gerald Finzi, “…as surely as birds must sing, so long as words exist and man is capable of feeling, there will be song.”
From the Conductor, Dr. Michael Huff
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to lead Utah Voices. The choir is being operated by people who have energy, imagination, determination, and above all, a desire to work with me in creating a social environment that is welcoming, affirmative, and vibrant; that encourages our collective best efforts, and allows us to share the joy of making music (of all kinds) together.”

Dr. Michael Huff was born in Paris, France to an American military family in 1962. His family moved about every two years from then on, spending time near West Point, NY; in El Paso, TX; in New Jersey, Utah, and Frankfurt, Germany. They settled in Bountiful, Utah when his parents divorced in 1977. He attended Woods Cross High School, graduating in 1980.
Dr. Huff served as a missionary in London, England. Taking a break from college, he toured the Far East and Indian Ocean with the USO, performing with a country band for US military troops in Japan, Korea, the Phillipines, Okinawa, and with the Indian Ocean Fleet of the US Navy.
Dr. Huff has music degrees from the University of Utah and Arizona State University. He has been on the music faculties at Westminster College, Weber State University, The University of Utah, and most recently Utah State University. He currently helps to run a non-profit organization that serves Music Education in Utah – the Legacy Music Alliance.
He has led choirs for the LDS Church General Conference on three separate occasions. Having been born in the Church, he has served in various callings throughout his life, and held his first calling at the age of six as Primary Pianist. He has taught Sunday School, served as a counselor in the Bishopric, and for many years as a Stake high counselor, in which position he presently serves. He is not much of an outdoorsman, so for the safety of Boy Scouts everywhere he has never served in the Young Men’s organization.
He and his wife, Susan were married in the Salt Lake Temple in 1987. They have six children.
