Music Director-Once Upon A Mattress, School of Rock

Aaron Bartz

Aaron, a graduate of St. Olaf College, ran a successful piano studio in Mason City. Since moving with his family to Albert Lea, his focus has shifted to being a stay-at-home dad to his two children Miles and Asher, while still maintaining multiple professional opportunities. His performances and accompaniment have expanded to include a wider range of venues, including churches and schools in southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. Currently, he serves as the Music Director at Grace Lutheran Church in Albert Lea, MN, while continuing to accompany and perform at various venues. Aaron’s first CST show was the 2022 production of Legally Blonde as the rehearsal accompanist. This year, he embraces his role as Music Director at CST and is excited to amplify the talents of the gifted cast and crew, bringing the transformative power of music to life on CST stage.
