Sarah Loach Meister

I grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia where my father was a professor in the Music Department and the director of the choral organizations at the University of Virginia. I met my husband there as he completed his doctorate in German. We moved to Huntsville when he began teaching at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I have always loved the French language and began studying it in 6th grade, continuing through college and beyond. I spent my junior year in college studying at the University of Montpellier in Montpellier, France. I am a singer and currently sing in two small a capella groups concentrating on early and sacred music. I also sing in my church choir.
My husband and I live in southeast Madison County with our dog and two cats.
