Kotzschmar friends and ChoralArt hire a new executive director

A Fulbright Scholar, Brooke Hubner sees music education as a top priority.

The Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ and ChoralArt, formerly the Choral Art Society, have hired a Fulbright Scholar as their new executive director. Brooke Hubner, who worked as administrative coordinator for the Boothbay Harbor Region Chamber of Commerce, replaces Kathleen Grammer, who left the organizations this summer.

Hubner brings a musical background to the job. She earned a bachelor’s degree in music and English from Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts. She studied organ performance, and sang in choirs. “I have always wanted to be involved in supporting music and the arts in some capacity,” she said in a prepared statement. “As executive director for both FOKO and ChoralArt, I get to promote the artistry of two things I love, pipe organ and choir music…”Bob Keyes, Portland Press Herald
