We are delighted to announce that our Music Search Committee has unanimously recommended, and our Board of Trustees has unanimously voted, to hire Sherry McCamley as Heritage Church’s new Music Director and Accompanist. Sherry will join our staff this summer, following the retirement of Les Tacy.
Many of you are already familiar with Sherry since she has regularly subbed for Les for many years. Sherry brings 15 years of experience accompanying choirs, selecting hymns and worship music, and singing/performing at other churches around Cincinnati. She is a composer/director/performer whose credits include “She’s Crazy,” a cabaret-style performance that shines a tender light on mental health issues, and “Sherryoke,” an improvisational, interactive musical experience. Sherry also has taught music and drama at several area high schools, worked with the Ensemble Theatre Company, and offered her many musical gifts to the community in other ways ever since graduating from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education (Piano/Voice Major).
Our dedicated Search Committee (Alison Lang-Hickey, Joann Meyer, Roger Miller, and Kate Wells) has worked hard since last fall, creating a job description, advertising the position, receiving and reviewing applications, interviewing four very strong candidates, and ultimately settling on Sherry. They are excited to present her to you as our new Music Director and Accompanist.
Welcome to our HUUC staff, Sherry McCamley!
