On Wednesday, March 13, 2012, more people gathered for Lucy Moses School’s Annual Scholarship Luncheon than ever before. This isn’t surprising, considering the event’s honoree, Kaufman Center Trustee Wendy Mosler. Though Wendy has no formal training in music or music education, she has become one of Kaufman Center’s dearest and most valued friends
In 1999, pregnant with her second child Charlotte, Wendy came to LMS to register her then five-year-old son David for Suzuki violin classes. Just three years later she was back to register Charlotte for Dalcroze Eurhythmics and pre-ballet. Even before she joined the Center’s Board in 2004 she was an active volunteer. Wendy describes her passion, “I believe that music and arts education is a gift. It’s gift that lasts a lifetime and one that I would love for every family to at least have the opportunity to enjoy and treasure as we have.”
As a successful businessperson (she is Executive Vice President at Eastgate Realty), Wendy understands the power of relationships. Together with her husband Bruce, she has cultivated and nurtured many potential friends of Kaufman Center. Their work has made it possible for many students without family resources to study at LMS.
Valuing LMS’s active chamber music program, Wendy spearheaded the creation of the Lucy Moses Chamber Orchestra, providing intermediate level players the opportunity to play in a large ensemble. And if you walk through the halls of Kaufman Center this August and hear strains of Copland’s Hoe Down played by our enthusiastic youngsters, you can thank Wendy! Her skilled leadership was instrumental in the creation of the Summer String Fest, now thriving in its fourth year.
