Nick Ulrich. Hi, I am Steve Ulrich’s son and have had the pleasure of seeing my father and step mother, Elisabeth, start the Atitlan Music School several years ago and build a team to keep the school operating successfully into the present. I am honored now to become a member of the school’s board of directors. Over the years, I have participated in several fundraising events for the school - securing venues, booking entertainment, doing publicity, running sound, et cetera. In the first year, I remember creating the school’s Facebook page and adding other administrators to the page to help run it. I look forward to continuing to serve the school in my new capacity on the board.
