Email: Vonnie Houchin, Director
Vonnie wears many hats. In addition to being the Director for Dynamix, she teaches 6th grade at Southwest Middle School, is the Minister of Music for First Baptist Church, is a very talented pianist, and can be found directing music for the Firehouse Brewing Theatre and the Black Hills Playhouse. Besides her obvious excellence in musical performance, direction, and teaching, Vonnie’s additional gifts include her energy, enthusiasm, humor, ability to bring a song to life via analysis of the lyrics, and her knack of fine-tuning each piece to bring out the best in the song and the group.
Linda is Assistant Director and Arranger for Dynamix. She directed a women’s barbershop chorus for 10 years and was a coach of choruses for the Region 8 Sweet Adelines International Organization. She has sung with three choruses and seven different competing quartets. Linda played bass and sang with Calamity Jane, a 4-woman band and was a member of Different Women–a professional trio–for 8 years. Linda’s warmth, support, and attention to the “nuts and bolts” in the group includes holding extra rehearsals on Mondays from 1:00-3:00PM and working parts prior to Tuesday night rehearsals at 6:00PM for anyone who needs or wants some additional work on the music. Her arranging skills suit the group to a “T” — or maybe that should be to a “TLBB” — for Tenor, Lead, Baritone, and Bass!
