What I Do
A few of my duties are: producing the Orders of Worship, reporting copyright and usage, choosing and planning the congregational music, heading the organ search committee, accompanying the Children's Choir, coordinating and rehearsing with cantors, conducting the Canticle Choir, and monitoring the care and repair of all keyboard instruments on the premises.
More About Me

Mary studied piano at the prestigious St. Joseph Convent Music School in Milwaukee, WI throughout grade school and high school.  She began harp studies with Jeanne Henderson in the Milwaukee Public School System. She also studied string bass and voice. She earned degrees in applied harp and music education from Alverno College in Milwaukee, WI.

Along with teaching in the public schools, Mary has taught piano and harp privately. She is also a certified Yamaha keyboard instructor. Currently she teaches piano and harp for the MPS Traveling Music Teacher program.

While living in the Houston, TX area, Mary free-lanced for 11 years, and during that time she served as substitute harpist with the Houston Symphony and second harpist with the Houston Ballet Orchestra.

She has served as president of the San Jacinto Chapter of the American Harp Society, SW Regional director of the American Harp Society, and president of the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen. She chaired the International Folk Harp Conference held in Galveston in 1998. Mary is the immediate past president of the Scottish Harp Society of America. She served as editor-in-chief of the Folk Harp Journal for a six-issue interim.

Mary has enjoyed her return to the Milwaukee area. In her spare time Mary enjoys her 3 cats, and feeding the backyard birds.
