Principal, Cambium LLC

Michelle joined the Chicago Sinfonietta Board of Directors in 1995 and became the chair in 2001.  She served as chair until 2007.  Michelle has been, and continues to be one of the orchestra’s most creative thought leaders and consistent and generous supporters.  She hired current Executive Director Jim Hirsch in 2004. The Sinfonietta launched some of its most important initiatives under Michelle’s leadership including Project Inclusion, the chamber music series, and the SEED Program that serves high-school age student-musicians.  Michelle is the Principal of Cambium LLC

Bettiann Gardner
Civic Leader

Bettiann has been a stalwart supporter and leader for the Chicago Sinfonietta since the very beginning.  She served on the Board of Directors early in the orchestra’s history and as chair of various committees and initiatives throughout her long and ongoing association with the Sinfonietta.  Bettiann, and her husband Ed, have been instrumental in supporting our concerts, recordings, tours, and educational programs.  We would not be here without their generous and ongoing support.

Weldon Rougeau
Principal, Blank Rome

Weldon served as a founding member of the Sinfonietta’s board and as an officer and president of the organization during his long tenure.  He and his wife Shirley have been long-time supporters of the Sinfonietta, even after his work took him to Washington, DC a number of years ago. Weldon served as the president and chief executive officer of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and is currently a Principal at Blank Rome in Washington, DC.

Audrey Tuggle
Civic Leader

Audrey was recruited to the South Side Friends by its founder Betty Wilkens and began her work on behalf of the orchestra as a member and leader of this critical support group.  She founded the Magical Holiday Breakfast ten years ago, the delightful fundraising event presented every December by the Friends at Navy Pier which has raised well over $250,000 in support of the orchestra’s educational and concert programs since its inception.  Audrey chaired the Sinfonietta’s 20th Anniversary celebration in 2007 at the Civic Opera House and turned it into the elegant Ball that it has now become.  She continues to support the orchestra through her leadership and volunteering.

Roger Wilson
Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for Blue Cross Blue Shield Association

Roger began his work on behalf of the Chicago Sinfonietta in 1987 as one of the original members of the Board of Directors, a position he held until 2005.  During his tenure he served as a member of the Executive Committee as both Secretary and Treasurer.  Roger also served as chair of the Gala and both raised and personally contributed significant funds that enabled the orchestra to grow and flourish.  He is Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.
