McKenzie Lamb began serving as director of the Cathedral Handbell Choir in September 2018.
Being inspired by the influences of music, McKenzie Lamb has dedicated herself to fostering strong communities through this powerful medium. After concluding her musical studies at the University of Idaho in 2014, she continued her education at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College studying music therapy. McKenzie is currently working towards completing her internship at Willow Song Music Therapy Services, playing percussion in the band Crooked Kilt, and continues to perform with various other groups such as the Chorale Coeur D’Alene.
McKenzie’s past experiences include teaching percussion, aural skills, and theory. She has worked for productions such as the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, been co-captain of the University of Idaho’s drumline, and performed in ensembles which vary in scope from West African drumming and dance, jazz, to music from the British Isles.
In her free time McKenzie treasures the moments spent with her husband and two dogs. She enjoys hiking, reading, learning to play new instruments, and the occasional woodworking project.
