Annalisa Meyer lives in DeForest with her husband and two small children. She has studied piano since elementary school, and continued lessons through college. She studied oboe beginning in middle school and continued on through college, playing with Madison’s Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra in high school, and later in Edgewood College’s community band. She joined Bethlehem’s adult choir,and soon after began accompanying the choir on piano. In 2012 she began playing organ for Bethlehem. She looks forward to many years serving God and His family through music. Annalisa and her husband Russell have been members of Bethlehem since 2005.
Amanda Tetzlaff is a born and raiseed Wisconsin girl (a diehard Packers, Brewers & Badgers fan!). She left the state for college, where she attended Northwestern College in St. Paul, Minnesota. But she quickly returned after graduating and has called the Madison area "home" ever since. The daughter of a LCMS pastor, Amanda is no stranger to church involvement; she started getting involved at Bethlehem Lutheran in about 2007. After already leading children's music, the children's Christmas program, accompanying choir, and filling in on organ, she accepted the call to add part-time organist to her list of duties. She figures she owed it to her parents for all those years of paying for piano lessons growing up!
