Peninsula Symphonic Band
Door County, Wisconsin  

musical director emerita
Being the musical director for the Peninsula Symphonic Band really is a dream come true. I have been a member of the band almost since the beginning, starting as a French horn player, moving back a row to become a baritone player. After 10 years, I moved to the front of the band and became the director. I have enjoyed the challenge and the opportunity to work with this talented group of people. I have a music education degree from UW-River Falls, and have spent the last 17 years as a “band-aide” in the Sturgeon Bay schools (a teacher’s aide in the band department= band-aide). The community band has added a lot of fun and joy to my life and I have enjoyed bringing the sounds of music to the people of Door County. So, grab that instrument out of the back of your closet and join in the fun. There’s always room for you!
