Patricia Yoder graduated from EMC (now EMU) with a B.A. in English. Theater and music have always been central to her life. For the past 15 years she has been employed as Arts & Education Manager at Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community. Serving up a “menu” of good music and interesting, educational events and tours for independent residents is what she enjoys most. Patricia has served on various church committees and the board of Friendship House. Outside of work, spending time with family and singing in church choir claim time and attention. For Patricia, the Bach Festival has been a highlight for many years.
