Accompanists

Erin Anderson, Accompanist

Erin Anderson joined MCC for the 2017-18 season accompanying Melodia Women and Melodia Mixed Choir. In addition to MCC, Erin accompanies as needed in the local school districts and churches. Erin studied music at Gustavus Adolphus College and taught piano lessons from the time she was 12 years old until she finished college. MCC is a great opportunity for Erin to connect with children in the local communities and have a musical outlet in her otherwise “corporate” world.
