Earlier this year, Making Music announced that they were looking for four new Board members, and that any member of a full member group could stand. They also particularly wished to encourage nominees based in Scotland, Northern Ireland or the South West, from vocal groups and, to achieve a gender- and age-balanced Board, they particularly welcomed nominations from women and people under the age of 35. Celeste Berteau (Alto) immediately volunteered.
As there were nine candidates, an election was called, and we are very proud to announce that Celeste was one of the four successful candidates. She is due to attend her first Board meeting this month. We look forward to hearing more when we resume rehearsals in August.
