Hello Lee CC,

My name is Sheri O’Day and I am very grateful to begin serving as your church accompanist.

This all began when I was nine years old and was asked to accompany all the Sunday school classes at my church, eventually filling in as a
summer organist in high school and as an accompanist for church choir director friends in college where I graduated with degrees in Applied
Piano and Music Education.

I have been an elementary music teacher for the past sixteen years at Maple Wood in Somersworth where I live.

I have three grown sons and an adorable grandbaby named Brody.

I’m looking forward to meeting all of you!

Choirs Director:

Hi everyone!

My name is Colleen Macdonald and I will be joining Lee Church Congregational this September as the new Choir Director. I’m originally from Foxboro, Massachusetts and I am now a Music Education major at the University of New Hampshire. Currently in my senior year, I have put an emphasis on vocal and choral studies in college. At the University, I have been a singer with the University Concert Choir and Chamber Singers since the beginning of my freshman year, as well as participating in the University Opera production for two semesters This past Spring I began studying advanced choral conducting and have had the opportunity to work with the Chamber Singers and
conduct the group in performances. This fall, I will also be working with the Concert Choir and Treble Choirs at UNH, along with the Rockingham Choral Society. Outside of UNH I have also worked at various summer music camps for students entering grades 5 through college.

I’m very excited to be joining the community of Lee Church Congregational and am very grateful for the opportunity! I’ve already had the pleasure of meeting a few people and I’m overwhelmed by how kind and welcoming everyone has been. I’m eager to meet everyone and am looking forward to the year ahead! If you have any questions for me or are interested in singing with the choir, please don’t hesitate to contact me! Our first choir rehearsal will be held on September 12th from 7:00-8:30pm.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Colleen Macdonald
