Music in the Mountains announces new directors

Music in the Mountains announces three new directors joining the team for 2015. All new officers will be sworn in at the December meeting.

Beverly Erickson has been a member of the MIM Chorus since 1979, and was the founding MIM Board president. Erickson has been involved with MIM in almost every capacity, making her a cornerstone of MIM’s history. She brings experience in marketing, advertising, and design.

Marilyn Whelan brings a background both in running a multi-million dollar distribution company and in classical music.

A classical pianist since her youth, she also was a competitive ice skater and also enjoys all of the outdoor recreation opportunities available to the region.

Robert Erdmann holds both a Ph.D. in applied mechanics and physics from California Institute of Technology and a J.D. from Santa Clara University. Now retired, he makes the foothills his home with his wife, Linda.

In addition, MIM welcomes Terry Brown into the role of board president for the first time in his long history with the organization. Currently serving as treasurer, Brown was one of the founding partners of Music in the Mountains, along with Paul Perry.

“Well, it’s taken me 35 years of involvement with Music in the Mountains to become president of the board, so if nothing else, I’ve got experience,” says Brown.

“But, seriously, I’m very honored by this. I’m looking forward to an exciting year working with our talented staff and board, including these three great new additions. MIM has some innovative plans for enhancing our audience’s concert experience. We will be working with our friends at InConcert Sierra and The Center for the Arts on mutually beneficial projects. And, as always, we’ll be doing our very best to continue being one of the reasons that we all love to live in Nevada County.”

The MIM Board of Directors Officers for 2015 are President Terry Brown, Vice President John Fuller, Vice President Kent Riffey, Treasurer Bill Kinney and Secretary Judith Ciphers. Dan Halloran will remain on the board as past president.
