The Board of Trustees announces the appointment of Mona Christensen as the new executive director of Birch Creek Music Performance Center, effective May 18, 2015.
“We are delighted to welcome Mona as our new executive director,” said board President Barbara Flint. “She has proven leadership skills as a director of arts and enrichment programs for children and adults, as well as a stellar track record in developing creative people in a collaborative team environment. A musician with a passion for music education, she has long admired Birch Creek’s mission, and as a resident of Jacksonport, she is already actively involved in many aspects of Door County community life.”
Christensen joins Birch Creek from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay (UWGB), where she has served as director of camps and conferences, marketing and technology supervisor, and Learning in Retirement adviser.
“I am so excited to be a part of the Birch Creek family and its traditions,” said Christensen. “Its breadth of music training and programming reaches all over the country and beyond. I look forward to an exciting future with the Birch Creek organization, including its board, students, faculty, volunteers, donors and concert goers.”
