Noah Witenoff, President (He/Him)

Noah has been a member of Singing Out since 2019 and is excited to serve as President on the choir’s board of directors. Noah has loved singing ever since he was a kid and participated in musical theatre until he was about 13 years old. Since then he has continued to sing exclusively in his car and his shower and now happily with Singing Out. Since joining Singing Out, Noah has found way more than a public place to sing, he has found family and community.

Noah studied International Business at Concordia University before changing directions and going to cooking school and then changing again and becoming a food stylist, which he has now done for over 17 years. His years working alongside some of the country’s top advertising agencies and largest corporations will bring insight to help provide lasting and useful strategies to help Singing Out in the years to come.
