-Sisters in Song-
Pamila Whitney, Associate Director, earned a BA in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Elementary Education and a Teaching Credential from SDSU. She is passionate about the need for quality music education in our schools. Recognizing the need and lack of a choral program at Point Loma High School, she co-founded and directed the after school ensemble, “Vocal Point," with Kerri De Rosier. After two years, she and Kerri successfully oversaw the program’s transition into the daily curriculum. "Key of She" is yet another realization of a long held dream to form and participate in an outstanding women's ensemble.
Kerri De Rosier, Choir Master, has a BA in English from UCLA and a Masters Degree in Public Administration and Certificate in Teaching Writing from SDSU. Kerri is a life-long musician, with membership in the UCLA A Cappella Chorus, Cambridge Singers in Los Angeles, La Jolla Symphony Chorus, and Masterworks Chorale. Kerri recently founded choral music programs at Dana Middle School, Correia Middle School and Point Loma High School, and, together with Pamila Whitney, ran an after school choir program at Point Loma High before the class became an elective in 2015. Fun note: Kerri and Pamila have been singing together since they met in 8th grade!
Patricia Cox, Artistic Director, has a BA in Political Science from Cal State Fullerton, studied Music Education with an emphasis in piano at SDSU and has a Master’s Degree in Education from National University. After a career in commercial real estate development, she switched gears to music education and taught elementary music, with an emphasis in the Orff-Schulwerk method and later directing middle and high school choirs in the San Diego Unified School District. In 2014, she joined the San Diego Community College District and is currently an Adjunct instructor in the Emeritus Program.
Past and current memberships include the National Association for Music Education (MENC), California Association for Music Education, Southern California Border Section (CMEA), American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) and the American Orff-Schulwerk Association, San Diego Chapter.
