My name is Courtney Popp, the new choir director at Avon Lake. Originally from Cincinnati, I moved up to Cleveland to attend Baldwin Wallace University for their music education program. I graduated in May and moved up to Cleveland after accepting the vocal music director position at Learwood Middle School. In addition to teaching in Avon Lake, I direct the chancel choir at the United Methodist Church of Berea. I also do some professional singing in the area, including singing for Trinity Cathedral and Quire Cleveland.
If I’m not prepping for school, practicing piano/voice, score studying, listening to music, or doing anything else music-related, I’m usually *attempting* to cook (it’s a hobby I’m determined to learn despite my failures), exercising, snuggling with my cat, traveling when able, or hanging out with friends.
I’m looking forward to the upcoming school year and all that this year has in store!
