Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival Names  
Jody Woos as New Executive Director
June 4, 2013 
Joanna (Jody) Woos has been named Executive Director of the Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival, Buff Lindau, Vice President of the Festival board, announced today.

Woos is the founder and Executive Director of the Green Mountain Suzuki Institute, a summer music camp for students ages 4 to adult, and also maintains a private piano studio in New Haven, VT. Her background is enormously varied, and includes broad teaching experience from pre-kindergarten through college, nonprofit management experience, and the commissioning of new chamber works for young players. 
Woos says: "I am honored to have been selected for one of the most interesting and exciting jobs in the arts sector in Vermont today! After just four years of producing its end-of-summer festival, the organization is in the enviable position of already having a reputation for the absolutely highest level of music programming. My job now is to build on this strong base, and to continue to implement Soovin Kim's artistic vision as the Festival continues into its fifth season and beyond."

"The board is thrilled to have Jody as Executive Director of this exciting chamber music festival - she is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and extraordinarily capable," said John Canning, a member of the search committee and of the Festival board.  "Jody will be able to step into this important position and continue without any hesitation, orchestrating our Summer Festival and more. Her background in music education will be of particular relevance as the Festival continues to work to build support for chamber music throughout the community."  
Woos replaces Martha Ming Whitfield, who served as Executive Director from 2009 to the present. Whitfield resigned to pursue a career in medicine. 
The Lake Champlain Music Festival seeks  to inspire and nurture a lifelong appreciation for classical music throughout the community. With a focus on providing opportunities for enrichment to people of all ages and levels of musical experience, the Festival presents world-class performers in concert, engages a range of audiences, and provides meaningful experiences for aspiring young musicians, composers, and educators. The 2013 Summer Festival runs from August 18-25.  Details can be found at
