Lakeland Health Choir Welcomes New Director
Apr 18, 2017 Share

(ST. JOSEPH) – Healing Harmonies, the Lakeland Health Choir, recently welcome a new director, Alyson Wendzel. Wendzel graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in K-12 Music Education, and a focus in choral studies. She was a member of the Western Michigan University Chorale, the lead soprano in the vocal jazz group, Gold Company, and plays the French horn.

“I am excited for the opportunity to work with adults, and think music is a great way to enhance healing in patients,” said Wendzel.

Healing Harmonies was established in 2016 in an effort to continue to create a healing environment for patients, family members, visitors, and Lakeland team members.

“The choir emerged out of a ‘challenge’ to think and behave ‘transformatively’ and to think and do things differently as part of a larger organizational change process,” said Lynn Todman, PhD, Executive Director Population Health, Community Health and Wellness.

Healing Harmonies practices every other Tuesday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Merlin and Carolyn Hanson Hospice Center, located at 4392 Cleveland Avenue in Stevensville. Practices are open to the public. If you are interested in having Healing Harmonies perform at your business or organization, email mgallert@lakelandhealth.org or call (269) 983-8267
