The Santa Fe Women’s Ensemble is managed by a volunteer board of directors consisting of 5-20 members. We are currently seeking new Board member candidates and hope you will consider serving. Please read the letter below.

Dear Friends of the Santa Fe Women’s Ensemble,

The SFWE has a 43-year history of performance excellence. We are very much in need of new board members for the next season.  You don’t need to have a music background to be a board member, just an interest in music and furthering the mission of the SFWE.

Board members serve an initial three-year term and may be re-elected for a second three-year term.  There are five – six board meetings a year which are currently held online at 9:00 am on Saturday mornings.  If most members prefer a different time, we can be flexible.

We are recruiting board members who have a wide variety of expertise and are especially in need of a Board Treasurer candidate comfortable in the role of financial oversight and fundraising coordination. Another important role to be filled is the lead in concert event coordination.

For more details, please go here to read a document outlining 1) a short history of the SFWE; 2) SFWE mission; 3) duties of board officers; and 4) general board responsibilities.

If you have questions or would like to apply for board membership, please contact Board President Terrell Falk at her email address [email protected].  If you prefer to communicate by phone, please use our phone number 505-303-8648. If we miss your call, please leave a voicemail stating your interest in Board service and we will get back to you asap.

Thank you for your past and future support of the SFWE.  We greatly appreciate it.

Best regards,

Terrell Falk

Board of Directors & Administrator Bios

Terrell Falk, president, is a retired marketing and museum professional whose last position was COO of the Perot Museum in Dallas. She has written a historical novel based upon her museum experiences, currently being edited for publication. A passionate music lover, choral singer and former violin player, Terrell is married, with two adult children and six grandchildren.

Jill McCormick, singer representative to the board, is a lifelong singer and musician, and has also sung with the First Presbyterian Chancel Choir and the Symphony Chorus. She enjoys working with tuning forks to bring healing tone into the body in her practice at Ancient Tides Wellness. She expresses other creative outlets through training Waldorf teachers.

Maggie Odell, vice president, enjoyed past membership in the Santa Fe Symphony Chorus and Zia Singers, and she brings that love of singing and music to the Ensemble board. She also devotes her time to volunteering at the Santa Fe Opera, playing tennis, bicycling around town, knitting (in cold weather) and puttering in the home garden.

Kathie Redmond, secretary, was born in Michigan and has a BA in comparative literature from Michigan State University. She attended University of Texas Graduate School in film and worked as a location scout, manager and production coordinator. An illustrator and songwriter, Kathie was a finalist in the Kerrville New Folk Competition and the Austin Songwriters Competition.  

Jane Yuster, director, has had successful careers in industry, as a CEO of a biotechnology company, and in education, as the superintendent of schools in California. Jane is both an instrumentalist and a vocalist. She has a passion for performing early music and for historically informed baroque music as well.

Nancy Maret, administrator, wandered west from New York to Santa Fe in 1994. She has enjoyed singing and volunteering for the Ensemble enough to take an administrative role. Forty years in corporations gave her valuable perspectives on organizations. While maintaining the daily bookkeeping and ongoing operations, she pursues opportunities for long-term sustainability. She invites you to share your ideas!
