Meet the People of Columbia County: SHERI BAUER-MAYORGA 

by DeeAnn Veeder

 Vocalist, pianist, and educator, Sheri Bauer-Mayorga, began her academic studies as a student of the piano at the Hartt School of Music and Brooklyn Conservatory. She joined the village music scene originally as a pianist, performing and recording the works of modern American composers. Her university piano mentors were John Cobb and Doris Hays.

To further a passion for American song, Sheri later took advanced studies in voice, folk music research, and Kodaly music at the Hartt School of Music, the Westminster Choir College, Shenandoah University, and with composer and arranger, Alice Parker.  Sheri has studied both jazz and classical voice with Anne Turner, Jay Clayton, and Jeannette LoVetri via "Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method" workshops. She has accompanied and sung with Albany’s premiere choral group, Albany Pro Musica and has taught singing, music history, chorus, and led community sings at the Westchester Community Music School, Little Falls School of Music, the Rudolf Steiner School in Great Barrington, the Great Barrington Waldorf High School, the Alternative Learning Center - Chatham, NY, the Hudson Opera House-Hudson, NY, Berkshire Summer Strings-Egremont, MA, and PS21-Chatham, NY.

Sheri is founder and director of the community space for the singing-political-poetic human voice above the Chatham Bookstore, SECOND SPACE. 

As vocalist, Sheri recorded two eclectic vocal projects for TownHall Records, "On The Wrong Side of the Railroad Tracks,” and “American Snapshots: 200 Years of American Song,” with her husband, pianist, Lincoln Mayorga.  On alternating Mondays you can hear her show, “The Monday Musical Matinee” on WGXC-90.7FM, a community radio station in Hudson, New York.
