Marinda Jenkins: Choir Director

Marinda comes to us from Oakland University in Auburn Hills, Michigan, where she earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance with concentration in Choral Conducting.

She was Director of Music at the Holy Spirit Lutheran Church for over a year.

Recently, she was also the Assistant Conductor of the Oakland University Chorus and the Section Conductor of the Oakland Chorale.
She performed as a soprano soloist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Pops as well as in many other venues.

She is also a professional cellist, maintaining her own studio.

From one of her references: “The folks in her [then] current church are broken-hearted to be losing her. She’s also a firm believer in the ability of the church to influence society in positive ways such as social justice, fighting poverty, and equality of all in the eyes of the law.”

Marinda will be with us for two years as she pursues the degree Master of Music in Choral Conducting from Penn State.
