About the Musical Director

Classically trained in voice, piano and violin, Paula Kelley studied piano for 12 years at the South Shore Conservatory of Music in Boston. At age 16 she began studying voice with Greta Milius. During this time she sang competitively in many Massachusetts choirs.  With an interest in theater and performance, she joined a theater group founded by Peter Tolan, Emmy winning writer for Murphy Brown, and screenwriter for many movies including Analyze This and Analyze That. She worked professionally as a singer with local rock bands, including "FarrenHeit" sharing the stage with such artists as "Aerosmith," and also as a studio musician singing jingles and back-ups. After her arrival to California, she continued to study voice with Shigemi Matsumoto and acting with Kathryn Bild. 

Paula joined The Notables in 1997 and became Music Director in 2006, having guest-conducted the 2005 Christmas concert. Her musical knowledge and enthusiasm along with her dedication to The Notables ensure its continued success.
