Sister Lorna Zemke Endowment Fund & Zemke-Daniel Rehearsal Hall Dedication Ceremony

About the Sr. Lorna Zemke Fund 

Sister Lorna Zemke is an internationally recognized Kodály Music Educator who is Emeritus Sr._Lorna_Zemke_cropped.jpgProfessor of Music at Silver Lake College. Early in her career, Sister Lorna worked alongside Katinka Daniel on a Kodály pilot program in Santa Barbara and also spent six months collecting primary source materials on the Kodály Concept in Hungary. Sister Lorna went on to become one of the founders of organizations including OAKE, MKMEA, and AWAKE. Sister Lorna was the director of the Kodály Graduate Summer Music Program for more than 40 years. Sister Lorna is perhaps best known for being a mentor and role model to countless master teachers.

A gift to the Sister Lorna Zemke Endowed Fund would allow Sister Lorna’s legacy of exemplary music education to live on by way of an Endowed Chair of Music Education.
