Jenny Harris-Patterson began her friendship with Heartland Men’s Chorus in 2015.
It all started when she stated, “I am here to help, and I will do whatever.” She assisted with two Dinner of Notes and then was asked to chair the event. Her two-year commitment turned into a four-year commitment!
“To me, being asked to join the board is an absolute honor. It means I can give my talents, my suggestions, and feedback to help move the chorus into the future,” says Harris-Patterson. “HMC does not disappoint with the concerts and the wonderful, meaningful messages that come with that music. To support the chorus means to support not only the members of the chorus and what this group means to them but also the wonderful music that is created for the Kansas City community.”
Jenny has loved every minute of planning, organizing, and community involvement that HMC offers her and can often be counted on for treats as she loves to bake. Jenny has worked for Saint Luke’s Health System for 19 years as the Child Care Center Director at the plaza location. Jenny is from St. Louis (Go Cards! Imos pizza is the best!) and is married to her husband, James Patterson.
