Addresses of Minnesota Orchestra Board Members

Many patrons have contemplated mounting letter-writing campaigns to the Minnesota Orchestral Association (MOA) board members. Here is a list of the board of directors, courtesy of the Minnesota Orchestra’s website. There is a star (*) next to each individual who is a member of the Executive Committee. (The website isn’t exactly clear about the duties or purpose of the Executive Committee, but it is capitalized, so it must be Important.)

To make letter writers’ huge task a little easier, here’s a list of as many work addresses of MOA board members as I could find. All of this information is publicly available on the Internet; I included a link to where I found the information on each entry. If I was unable to find a work address, I left the member’s entry blank. If you have an address to share or correct, please put it in the comments, and I’ll put it here. (Note work address; home addresses will not be published.)

As Mary Schaefle has said before on the Musicians’ Facebook page, keep your letters short, respectful, and handwritten! Here’s a blog entry to inspire you. I know how frustrated you are – trust me, I’m right there along with you – but please please please don’t make our cause harder by being rude. Thank you so very very much.

I am not sure if this will do anything, but I hear people asking for this information all the time, so without further ado –

  1. Thank you so much Emily. You are so resourceful and clever. I had looked at the list of board members before but had no idea how to get their address. The most genius things are usually the simplest and easiest, and looking up public work addresses on the internet is definitely simple and easy. Wish I had thought of that.

    Letter writing time!
