Mary Finch

Executive Director

Mary Finch brings a wealth of choir management experience, a passion for social change through the arts, and a love of choral singing to her role. A soprano member of the San Francisco Opera Chorus for more than 20 years, she also served as a Chorus and Dance Personnel Manager for several years, responsible for the day-to-day operations for choristers and dancers at the second largest opera company in the country.

Mary returned to her hometown of Eureka in 2020 to serve as Eureka College’s first Director of Fine Arts Advancement and Recruitment. Under her leadership, the college saw significant growth in its donor base and alumni engagement through a virtual concert series, local press exposure, and social media platforms.

After a long career as a full-time, professional opera chorister and successful arts administrator, the opportunity to give back to the community proved a major factor in Mary’s decision to join Cantare in November 2021. She is excited to continue the organization’s mission of uplifting voices, and lifting lives with compassion and understanding through the beauty of choral music. And she is delighted to return to the lively and diverse choral music community in the Bay Area.
