Kathy McMinn is a music educator with over 35 years of experience. Her passion for choral music has been her motivation in developing several successful choruses that have pushed the potential of their singers. She directed the Federal Furnace Treble Chorus and was the founding director of the Plymouth Children’s Chorus, two guest choruses who performed with the Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra. Kathy founded South Shore Conservatory’s Pure Treble and Pure Harmony choruses. Both were accredited with performing with the Plymouth Philharmonic, the African Children’s Choir and a special performance for Vice President Biden. She directed the 2017 Plymouth Schools Elementary All Town Chorus and co-directed the Plymouth International Chorus in performances in Plymouth, Massachusetts and Plymouth, England.
Kathy volunteers with Music for Life, the parent organization for the Africa Children’s Choir in South Africa and Uganda. At home, she continues her volunteerism by facilitating a program that brings local school and community choruses together in concert with the African Children’s Choir. She created a Plymouth district-wide chorus for this purpose. Kathy also volunteers with Musicians On Call. She sings with Sippican Choral Society and has sung with the Pilgrim Festival Chorus and Kwaya Uganda.
Kathy is the recipient of the G. Herbert Clarke Award, the Plymouth Public Schools "Inspiration" Award, the Paul Harris Fellow through the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, and the Community Volunteer Award for Service Above Self. She is also the recipient of the 2011 Yale Distinguished Music Educator Award, the Plymouth County Education Association Honor Award and the Plymouth Cultural Council’s ARTY Award.
“Choral singing is a way in which a child can explore their musicality in a safe and inclusive community. When children sing they are exposed to different cultures and genres and are able to experience the world in new and exciting ways.”
