Meet new member Rebecca Peterson
I graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in music (after first attending the University of Minnesota). Moved to Minneapolis. Did some coursework in early childhood development. Continued studying the violin. Taught at MacPhail Center for the Arts. Married Mark Solie. Moved to Fergus Falls in 1991. Taught Early Childhood Music and did other music projects while children were young. In 1994 hired by A Center for the Arts. Executive Director 1994 to present (whew…really that long?). Serve on the board for the Kaddatz Hotel Galleries, ltd. Play violin in the Fargo Moorhead Symphony (is also on their board), the FM Opera (where I'm also personnel manager) and with the Laurie Strom String Trio (where I just get to play music with two REALLY good friends). Serve on the board of Prairie Public Television and Minnesota Citizens for the Arts. If it’s not obvious by now – I have a passion for the arts!
