RHONDA MUCKERMAN Artistic Director
Rhonda Muckerman’s musical training began in New Jersey, with an old harmonica, an electric organ, and her babysitter’s guitar. After many years studying the flute, she went on to earn a Bachelor of Music degree in music education from Michigan State University. She then earned her Master of Music degree in conducting from the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati. Muckerman is an accomplished flutist. She has extensive teaching experience, in both the instrumental and choral music disciplines, ranging from young children to adults, and covering Michigan, Ohio, Washington. From 2003-2018, Muckerman taught instrumental music in the Norwood and Telluride, Colorado school districts. She began her long-affiliation with the Telluride Choral Society as first a singer in the Chorale and Chamber Singers in its first eight years of existence, and now as its Artistic Director. She truly enjoys working with singers of all ages, and presenting and performing quality choral repertoire here in the Telluride region- and most of all, appreciates the process by which music making brings people together.
