Poppea Dorsam, Vice-President


Poppea Dorsam learned of the choirs when looking for a quality organization for her daughters Gavan and Kasandra. Between them, they have participated in Kinderchoir through Ancora and Gavan will add Ecco this year. Poppea is not ashamed to admit that she volunteers as a room parent just so she can have the opportunity to sit through rehearsals as the #1 groupie. Professionally, Poppea is a cellist who teaches at University of San Francisco, Holy Names University Preparatory Department, San Francisco Community Music Center, Piedmont School District Cello Clinician, and in her private cello studio in Piedmont. As a performer, she is a member of the Liberty Street Piano Trio and the Sacramento Philharmonic. In addition she enjoys administrative roles which have included Program Director, Orchestra Negotiation and Player's Committees, Faculty Chair and Board Member. Poppea holds a Doctoral of Music in Cello Performance from Boston University and a Bachelor of Music from Oberlin College.
