Board Chair Dr. Lenny Farmer remarked, "I'm inspired by what continues to come out of conversations with such a wide-ranging and esteemed group of passionate people. Assembling this group of thought leaders is the culmination of many hours of tireless work by our Executive Director, Todd Wilson. We are very grateful for the many contributions from this group and have been realizing tremendous benefits for the last two years.” Wilson was quoted as saying, "I believe strongly in author Stephen Covey’s suggestion to “surround yourself with talented people.” “It is important for the members of our leadership team to hear from different voices and different sectors of our community. We are honored that so many well-connected people are willing to donate their time to help us achieve our mission to enrich lives through singing and the support of music education.”
