Marketing Vice President

While not a resident of Alexandria, Catherine is native to the area – born and raised in Arlington, VA.  Growing up, Catherine loved to sing but was shy to do so in public, despite living with her music-oriented family.  Both her father, Bill, and brother, Anthony, are award-winning participants in The Barbershop Harmony Society on top of being music educators by trade.  A month after her father accepted the position of Music Director of the Alexandria Singers, Catherine was finally coerced willing to audition for her first singing group since high school.  After auditioning and joining the Alexandria Singers in February 2007, Catherine came to experience the joys of singing again – she was able to meet new people, overcome her fear of singing in public, and embark on new adventures (including a trip to Salzburg) with her now-extended family.  In the spring of 2008, Catherine was recruited for the open Marketing VP position and has maintained it ever since.  The merger of Catherine’s new-found-love for singing outside of the shower, thrill of shopping and styling, and professional work history allow her to manage the needs of the Singers, while expanding their audience base and increasing their activities and performances throughout the metro area.  With industry experience that includes DoD contracting, retail & restaurant sales, elementary education, the City of Alexandria’s own Visit Alexandria (previously, ACVA) and current employment as a Corporate Administrator for Avening Management and Technical Services, LLC (an advertising partner with The Alexandria Singers), Catherine brings to the Board skill sets in clerical support, communications, styling, and IT that help the Singers run smooth operations and continued expansion. These operations help the Singers meet their target goal – bringing music into the community.
