Dogwood Blossoms Chorus Leadership

Dogwood Blossoms Chorus thrives in part because of the commitment of the people in leadership. Here are a few of the people that make our ensemble tick:




Susan B



Susan is a charter member of the Dogwood Blossoms Chorus. If there is a committee, she has been on it. She sings bass in the chorus and was on the choreography team from its inception more than 20 years ago. She is now putting her energy and creativity into her position as assistant director. We appreciate her many years of support and dedication.


Susan retired as the administrative assistant to the Provost at Kenyon College, resides in Mount Vernon with husband, Fred, and has two grown children.




Karen B


Karen is another 36-year charter member who co-directed the chorus upon its inception. We are blessed to have her talents as she still enjoys directing an occasional song. Karen serves on the music committee as the assistant bass section leader.  

Karen is a retired nursing home bookkeeper.

She has been in the choir at First Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon for more than 46 years. She resides in Mt. Vernon, has three adult children, and six grandchildren.
