Evie Marie Gilgen
Accountant by day and singer by night - Evie is ecstatic to be joining the board of Opera Contempo, serving as Treasurer! Evie holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Westminster College and was in the inaugural cohort for the Master of Music in Vocal Chamber Music from the University of Redlands, where she studied with former King’s Singer Chris Gabbitas. As part of this innovative new master’s degree, singers interested in pursuing careers as professional choral artists and ensemble directors took classes ranging from choral music history and literature, to non-profit organization, fundraising, and music business. As the Accounts Payable Office Specialist at Westminster College, Evie puts these administrative skills to work daily, but she is so excited for the opportunity to marry her numbers brain and creative soul, serving on the board for Opera Contempo!
