Bringing the best musicians from all parts of the world together to create extraordinary music in this unique venue, LAMF allows everyone to experience the beauty and dynamic majesty of great music. My passion for music has been the motivation to proudly serve as a volunteer since the infancy of this organization and I have been amazed to watch it grow exponentially. As a mother of four, grandmother of nine, a middle school music teacher, piano teacher, church musician, and director of a chorus of senior citizens, I have witnessed the power of music in the lives of people of all ages. My personal experiences as an organist/pianist and participation in choral groups and bell choirs have proven to me that there is no substitute for the JOY that Music brings to life!
