Wisconsin Conservatory of Music (WCM) has announced the recent hiring of three new employees – Shalisa Kline Ugaz as vice president of education, Meaghan Heinrich as director of conservatory connections and Lisa Screeton as director of development. The mission of the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music is to provide the finest musical education to the aspiring professional performer as well as to children and adults who desire cultural enrichment or musical self-fulfillment.

“I’m looking forward to all of the great possibilities we have with our new staff,” said Gregory Ruffer, WCM President and CEO. “Each of them come highly recommended with a wealth of knowledge and we are confident they are the right hires to help us continue to carry out our mission.”
