08 Jan Calvary’s Choir Director: Linda Teasley
When did you come to Calvary?
I came to Calvary via David Maley. We took classes at Shenandoah Univ. together and often commuted together. We both became music therapists.
What do you love about Calvary?
I love Calvary’s diversity and inclusion of people from many countries. I especially enjoy what this diversity brings to the music program.
