Management Team 2019-2020
The Management Team coordinates all logistical, financial, and membership initiatives to keep our chorus thriving as a non-profit organization and a successful performance ensemble. Leaders are nominated for one to two-year terms, depending on the role.
Anna Chelak, Team Coordinator
Anna joined Sirens in February 2013 after stumbling upon a nearby chapter’s chorus retreat at a hotel in New Jersey. Since then, Anna has consistently served in a variety of creative and administrative roles, most recently completing a 3+ year term as Visual Coordinator and Marketing Coordinator. During this time, she launched a major rebranding initiative for the chorus that resulted in a brand new logo and spearheaded the costume design for Sirens of Gotham’s international competition debut at the SAI Harmony Classic in 2018.
Always a performer, Anna has studied Ukrainian folk dance and ballet from a very young age and still performs with a number of local ensembles. She began studying dance and music more seriously in high school, going on to hold leadership roles in multiple vocal groups under the direction of Patty Danner (Hickory Tree Chorus, Drive! Baritone), who first introduced her to a cappella singing and barbershop music.
Anna currently sings Lead with Breakfast for Dinner (7th Place SAI Region 15, May 2019) and mixed quartet Spicy Special (2nd place BHS Mid-Atlantic Northern Division, April 2018). She hails from northern New Jersey, but has lived in New York City for over 10 years, currently residing in Brooklyn. She is a graduate of Barnard College at Columbia University and currently works in brand strategy at an advertising agency in Manhattan.
