Mary Schuett Spirit Award


Mary Schuett was CoFMC's beloved Accompanist and our biggest cheerleader who suddenly passed away in February 2016.  To honor the life and spirit of Mary, the Mary Schuett Spirit Award was created to recognize members, both singing and non-singing, for their contributions to Our Voice Milwaukee. This award is given for displaying patience, love, understanding, acceptance, and, like Mary herself, willingness to show passion and devote extensive time in support of the Chorus and its mission.
