Monica J. Felkel, Director of Artist Management
Monica J. Felkel, Director of Artist Management, began her career at YCA in 1989 and has served in her current positon since 2001. In addition to guiding the development and growth of each artist’s career, she is a frequently sought after panelist, moderator, and contributor for national and international industry conferences and journals on the many aspects of supporting dynamic emerging artists. Having been recognized in her 5th grade report card as being “always the first to volunteer”, Monica was elected four consecutive times to the Board of Directors of the International Artist Managers’ Association (IAMA) from 2007 – 2018. She was also the Vice President and then President of North American Performing Arts Managers and Agents (NAPAMA) from 1998 – 2003. A lapsed violist, but a “super fan” of all string quartet repertoire, she currently serves on the Board of her beloved Greenwood Music Camp and co-chairs their Development Committee. A 4th generation New Yorker, Monica is also PADI certified Divemaster and spends as much time as she can hovering over coral reefs seeking out tiny critters as her husband, Brian, snorkels above.
