Board Of Directors & Staff

We are so excited to share with you our 2018 Board of Directors. Every member brings with them experience, knowledge, and their own expertise.
Get to know more about our members below.  Each picture is accompanied with three answers to the following questions:

1. Why did you get involved with Peterborough Musicfest?
2. What two artists (dead or alive) make your dream concert pairing?
3. What is a hidden talent of yours?

Keep your eye out for them this summer and don't forget to say hi and thank them for everything they do to give back to our community!
