Board of Directors

The Deer Creek Chorale governing board is responsible for developing and implementing policy, managing business affairs and assuring compliance with state and federal laws applicable to a non-profit organization. Members include singers, youth choir parents, artistic staff and those interested in the Arts. The term of office is two years and service is limited to two consecutive terms according to the organization’s by-laws.

The all-volunteer board meets once monthly with the exception of December and July. Our artistic staff serves in an ex-officio capacity. Our advisory board members are business professionals who volunteer their expertise, time and efforts towards chorale management.


Four “standing” committees promote our mission. Each committee is chaired by Board members who may also serve on multiple committees. Choristers are encouraged to become actively involved in the organization by serving on a committee. Please contact the chair of any committee that interests you!

Concert Committee –responsible for implementing ticket sales, facility set-up, staging, ushers, etc. and is integral to the success of our performances.
