The Driftless Music Festival announced the addition of Christina Dollhausen to its board of directors.

For the past decade, Dollhausen worked as the events coordinator at the Stoughton Opera House where she was instrumental in transforming the historic venue from a little-used performance space to one of the state’s busiest and most popular concert halls, an endeavor that spurred significant economic development in the community.

A native of McGregor, Iowa, Dollhausen recently returned to the Driftless area with her husband Ben and three young boys to raise their family, and to set down roots on a fixer-upper farm just outside of Viroqua. She has nurtured a lifelong interest in music and the arts and is herself a gifted musician.

“With the addition of Christina to the Music Festival Board, we have set our sights clearly on the future of the event to insure that it will continue to be a rich and important asset to Viroqua and the Driftless area,” said Joel Johnson, the festival’s board president.

Dollhausen indicated she is honored to be asked to serve on the board and looks forward to working with such a fine group of community visionaries. Christina sees great potential for many good things to happen in the region, “I want to support and encourage people to continue to coordinate their efforts and implement amazing ideas that benefit and elevate the quality of life in the community.”

The Driftless Music Festival, a free family-friendly event featuring outstanding music from the region and beyond, is held annually on the second Saturday of July in Viroqua’s Eckhart Park.
