On behalf of the Board of Directors, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! As we enter into the New Year, I wanted to announce some changes within our Board of Directors.
My name is Emily Schley and I am taking over the Presidency of the Board for Katie Rasmussen. Katie did a wonderful job taking us into our 25th Season. I hope to bring us through that 25th season and position our organization to continue to bring high-level choral music to children in the Milwaukee area for the next 25 years and beyond!
am an attorney who works at J. F. Ahern Co. with a love of fine arts. I become a member of the Board of Directors in November 2017 because I wanted to be a part of a prestigious organization that introduces, develops, and instils a passion for fine arts in our youth. I look forward to meeting you all--find me at the next concert!
Next, some of you know our new Secretary of the Board, Jennifer Ohlendorf. She is an MCC parent to 2 choristers and has volunteered as a rehearsal assistant to several choirs. In her work life, Jennifer is an Assistant Professor at Marquette University in the College of Nursing. She has been a lover of choral music and musical theater for years, singing through high school and college. She currently shares her vocal gifts via serving as a cantor at St Sebastian parish in Milwaukee. Jen became our new Secretary at the start of our Fiscal Year.
Overall, our Board of Directors are a great group and together we are a fantastic team. We are looking forward to celebrating an exciting 25th Anniversary season.
I also want to thank all our choristers, families, volunteers, staff and friends for your continued support of helping bring singing and music education to the youth of Milwaukee. Together, we'll make a great community even better.
