Board Member Mary Beth Meyer

Being a native Virginian, Mary Beth grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains where her family instilled a love of music and encouraged her pursuit of musical endeavors. With sing-a-longs on car trips, piano lessons, participation in church choirs as well as high school chorus, talent shows, and piano accompaniment at church, her youth was filled with music that developed her life long passion. Her second passion, a love of children, was further advanced with an early childhood education degree from The College of William and Mary. After several years of teaching in Virginia and Queens, NY, she took off time to raise her beautiful son and daughter, who have grown into amazing adults. Mary Beth then entered the business world as a consultant in employee benefits and HR compliance from where she retired after 20 years.

She resides in Manakin  Sabot, VA with her husband with whom she runs a small business,  works part time as an educator for a national insurance company, and enjoys spending time with her two amazing grandchildren. Music is still a huge part of her life as she spent 13 years as accompanist for her church as well as now participating in the choir. Her role as board member for City Singers is an honor and blessing.
