A Fond Farewell...
To Elizabeth Zinger, our director from 2009-2014. We are grateful for her leadership, her friendship, and wish her the best in her new endeavors.
Introducing our new director - Martin Sobelman
We are pleased to welcome Martin Sobelman as our new director. Mr. Sobelman has an extensive teaching background, holding several positions in the San Francisco Bay area, Fresno and Madera counties, Napier New Zealand, and most recently as Music Specialist for Salem-Keizer School District where he retired in 2012.
He maintains a private studio for clarinet, saxophone and bassoon students, and is an active performer in chamber, orchestral, windband, big band, and theater music.
Mr. Sobelman earned an AB Degree from the University of California, Berkeley, completed graduate studies in Conducting at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Orff Shulwerk Level I and II studies at the University of Memphis (formerly Memphis State University).
Martin tells us that he has "the best wife, two wonderful daughters and four cool grandchildren!"
We look forward to introducing him to you at our Library Concert or other future performance.
