MMC Executive Director shares news of staff transition, and job posting for the next Executive Director

News from MMC Executive Director Joanna Schnedler, September 22, 2022

Dear Music Community:  I have decided that it is time for me to move on from my role as Executive Director at the Minnesota Music Coalition. I am ready to pass along the leadership of this organization to another person who can take it to the next level. I am excited at the prospect of what that next amazing person will do! Being at MMC has been a positive experience in so many ways, and I have been so grateful to work with a dedicated Board of Directors, excellent staff, and hundreds of amazing musicians and music community contributors.

I am still exploring what the next steps in my journey will look like, but I am excited to consider the possibilities. I’m sure you will still see me from time to time in the music and theater audiences, celebrating our state’s performing arts as a supporter and advocate. Over the years, I have felt honored to hear your stories (the inspiring and the challenging), and to see you create the art that makes Minnesota so special. I have felt so fortunate to have the role of championing opportunities to bring artists together.

MMC’s Board of Directors is starting its work to find MMC’s new director. You can see the job posting for this position HERE. I am committed to stewarding the organization as we prepare for this transition over the next few months. We have exciting programming in the works including our Caravan du Nord tour, some great workshops, and continuing to serve musicians across the state through booking opportunities, mentorship, and professional development.

In gratitude,

Joanna Schnedler
Executive Director, Minnesota Music Coalition
