Pam has a long history with the choirs starting in 2002 as an accompanist with the boys’ touring choirs. It was on her first trip to Oregon that she learned to appreciate this organization’s safety protocols and what it means to repeat roll call until you get it right. Her other favorite memories are traveling to Australia and New Zealand with her son, Andrew, where they performed together on the Sydney Opera House stage and managing the Girl Choir’s most recent performance tour to Estonia and Finland.
Pam earned a Master’s Degree in Music Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, studying under the late Eunice Boardman. She also holds a Bachelor’s of Music Education from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. She enjoyed a career as a full-time music and choral educator and part-time piano teacher for many years in Illinois and Wisconsin. When Pam is not decluttering her home or office, you might find her directing a musical, accompanying a school choir, or enjoying time in the kitchen with her family.
Liz directs our Voyageur Choir but continues to be our go-to person for virtual setups and technology troubleshooting. As an organization, we have made many upgrades thanks to her expertise as a Technology Integrator. You can read her full bio under the Boy Choir tab.

As one of the non-parent community representatives, her dedication to the GBBCGC is rooted in her belief that a young person's opportunity to experience the beauty and power of the art of choral music in community with others contributes toward their building a successful and fulfilling life.
Susan, a retired public school music educator, is currently an Adjunct Instructor of Music Education at St. Norbert College, and serves her community and state through involvement on a number of boards of music/art and professional associations. She loves to read, garden, cook, swim, travel, and attend concerts, plays, opera, and musicals with her husband Tom.
Douglas Coyle, M.D., has been serving on the Board of Directors since 2016. He is a proud parent to choir members in the Joliet, Cantabile, and Arietta choirs. His four children have all participated in the choirs. He is dedicated to providing an environment that fosters personal growth and the development of leadership skills.
During the day Doug works as a Radiologist at Bellin Hospital. His hobbies include reading to his children, travel, attending musical and theatrical performances, and spending time in Door County.
Amy Friberg-Wyckoff, MSM, previously served as the President of GBBCGC Board of Directors and has been involved with the Board of Directors since 2012.
Amy has been dedicated to the performing arts for over 30 years and has spent a lifetime of supporting others to find their own self potential and creative fulfillment through community involvement, job coaching, and children's programs. She truly believes that music is the universal language and that everyone can find their voice through performance.
By day, Amy is the business manager for Dental Arts Associates of Green Bay, Ltd., a local group general dentistry office. She enjoys the theatre, the outdoors and spending time with her children as they explore the excitement of mountain biking, cross-country skiing, geographical history and music. In a nutshell, she is a self-professed nerd.
Diane joined virtual board meetings in 2020 and recently made her first visit to see the rehearsal and office space. We are happy to have her on board!
"Hi, I am Mike Hagerty and I joined the choir’s Board of Directors to give back to an organization that I love and that my son Jacob is a member of. As a boy, I was one of the charter members of the choir, and by being a part of the choir, it fostered my love of music and helped me become the person I am today. Volunteering on the board allows me to help make sure the Choir is able to provide an opportunity for young singers to express and grow their own love for music and gain experiences that will last a lifetime. I also volunteer as a Scout leader with a local Boy Scout troop and I'm involved as a board of director for a local youth rec soccer league."
Amy Johnson has been serving on the Board of Directors since 2019. She is a blessed and proud parent to have her son entering his 4th year in the choir, currently singing with Joliet. Amy has a true love for the Arts and Music with her husband’s family having a long-standing musical background. She, along with her husband, Jeremie, could not be more excited to have found this niche for their son and to be involved with this amazing organization that helps promote the kids' musical talents, leadership skills, and personal development. She enjoys seeing the family atmosphere of this organization shine forth each week at rehearsals, during tours, at concerts, and impromptu events.
During the day, Amy is employed with the Denmark School District as a Speech and Language Pathologist, working with PK-K level students. She enjoys reading, spending time at the family cottage, pouring into her children, and attending musical and theatrical performances.
Kristine Luebke has been serving on the Board of Directors since 2014. She is the proud parent of a Green Bay Girl Choir alumna, an energetic tour chaperone, and a former parent manager. Music has been a part of her life since her childhood, where she was fortunate to be taught how to play the piano, violin, and clarinet. She performed on the clarinet and piano throughout junior high and high school in the band. She believes all children should have access to quality music education and performance opportunities that allows them to share their gift of music.
Debbie Scray has been serving on the Board of Directors for more than 8 years. She is dedicated to fostering the growth of youth in our community.
Debbie works as a realtor for Shorewest and Seidl & Associates. Her hobbies include skiing, traveling, serving on various boards in the community, and helping out with the family business, Scray Cheese.
The oldest of Trudi Wojtyla’s four children joined the choirs in 2011 with his younger siblings soon following. Since Trudi was already investing time, energy, and emotion in the organization, she thought it made sense to also assist by serving on the board. Trudi epitomizes the expression “when you want something done, ask a busy person.”
Trudi is a stay-at-home mother, leads her daughters’ Scouts BSA Troop for Girls, writes, paints, cooks, hikes, gardens, and enjoys travel when possible! Some days you might find her planning and helping out at the National Railroad Museum. She and her husband, Matt, were once active in musical theater and choir. Together, they enjoy watching their children participate in GBBCGC, school productions and the NEWDO Nutcracker Ballet. Both have enjoyed chaperoning our tours. Trudi says watching our children represent our choirs, our city, and our country so well is a huge source of pride and brings her great joy.
