Marion Anderson-Peat is a retired secondary school educator, having spent 35 years teaching Global Studies, African Studies, and Asian Studies in Barrington, Illinois. She has also worked in curriculum development and teacher training. Her background includes Masters Degrees in U.S. History and Asian Studies, as well as, extensive international travel and study. Marion now spends her summers in Spread Eagle, Wisconsin (near Iron Mountain) and joined the PMMF Board in 2004.
She treasures the experience of high quality classical music in the intimate settings of the U.P. venues. The greatest reward is when she hears people exclaim, "that's the best concert I've ever been to!"
Marion's favorite PMMF moment was an evening at the opera when a small boy slowly crept onto the edge of the stage and remained there, transfixed and unmoving, for the entire act.
