Shelby joined the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra staff in 2021. Her role as Patron Services Coordinator allows her to impact the community through music.

She graduated from Edgewood College, where she earned degrees in English and Music. She studied voice as a mezzo-soprano and performed with her school’s choirs and guitar ensemble. After graduating, she has continued singing with community choirs in Madison.

While in college, Shelby held an internship with the Madison Symphony Orchestra. There, she discovered her passion for working in arts administration. She worked in music publishing prior to joining the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra and she is excited to return to the performing arts world, serve the organization’s loyal patrons, and collaborate with the talented musicians.

In her free time, Shelby enjoys spending time with family and friends and her dog, Fritz.
