FAREWELL to Dr. Mary Kay Geston
A reception was held on April 30 for Mary Kay Geston, following the Women’s Chorale & Varsity Men’s Chorus homecoming concert. This concert marked the final opportunity for the University of Northwestern Women’s Chorale to perform under the direction of Dr. Mary Kay Geston, who has served as the conductor since 2000. Under her direction, the Women’s Chorale has performed at ACDA-MN Conferences, the Minnesota Music Educators Association Mid-Winter Clinic, the North Central ACDA conference, and with the Minnesota Orchestra under maestro Edo de Waart. During her tenure at University of Northwestern, Dr. Geston has also directed the Chamber Singers; taught advanced conducting, applied voice lessons, secondary choral methods, and music appreciation; and has supervised music education student teachers. This past fall Dr. Geston was given an especially notable honor when she was named the ACDA-MN 2012 Choral Director of the Year.
