Tree of Life UU Congregation Announces New Musical Team

Tree of Life Music Director Cassandra Vohs-Demman.
The Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 5603 Bull Valley Road in McHenry, Illinois will have new leadership this year for its choir and music program.  Cassandra Vohs-Demann has been named Music Director and will be joined by Billy Seger as Accompanist.
The pair takes up their duties after Forrest Ransburg, Music Director for the past three years, resigned to further his professional music education in Maryland.
Vohs-Demann is well known in McHenry County as a performer, singer/songwriter, vocal coach,  and owner of A Place to Shine Music.  She is the founder and Artistic Director of the Woodstock Community Choir, curates and hosts monthly Second Saturday Concerts and  hosts the Original Open Mic at the Stage Left Café.  She also leads the Ukulele Super Heroes.   She is no stranger to Tree of Life having sung with the Choir and performed at Coffee House programs.  Last spring she teamed with Forrest Ransburg for a special joint concert at the church. 

Billy Seger, Tree of Life Accompanist.
Billy Seger first started participating in musical theatre productions, choir, and piano lessons at the age of 8.  He is remembered for his enthusiastic performances in productions of Dille’s Follies presented by the church when it was known as the Congregational Unitarian Congregation in Woodstock. He graduated from Millikin University’s prestigious School of Theater and Dance in 2009.  He went on to perform professionally across the country, including two national tours, two international contracts aboard Oceania Cruise Lines, and two Christmas seasons as a backup singer/dancer for country superstar Pam Tillis. Segar currently lives in Woodstock and works as a professional director/choreographer for various theater companies including Woodstock High School and Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake.

Look for the Tree of Life UU Congregation sign on Bull Valley Road in McHenry.
The Tree of Life Choir under Vohs-Demann’s direction will perform during the annual in-gathering service and water communion Sunday, September 15.  A picnic on the grounds will follow the service.
