After Mary Wannamker Huff graduated Furman University in 1999, she continued her musical studies on a full scholarship at Yale University where she earned a Master of Music degree in 2001. She began specializing in training children for choirs and served eight years as director of children’s choirs at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola in New York City. In 2012, Huff founded the New York City Children’s Chorus at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church. Clad in red robes and white scarves, the chorus braved the cold and sang a holiday favorite on NBC’s “TODAY” show.
