William Hoffman

Bill and Marta Hoffman are new to our Mandskor family this year.  Bill, from Redfield, SD, and Marta from Aberdeen, SD, met while in school at Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD and were married in 1987.  Their first teaching jobs took them to Faulkton and Polo, SD.  Having been a band director for several years in Harrisburg, SD, where Mandskor singer Kirk Preheimís children attended school, Billís musical talent was something Kirk decided to rein in for the chorus.  His range is extensive, and although he started in the top tenor section, heís now happily singing bass. 

For the last 13 years, Bill has been working as an insurance agent for Horace Mann.  He performs as a drummer/singer with Mogenís Heroes and as a baritone with Gospel Gold Quartet.  Marta is a technology integrationist at Journey Elementary, in Sioux Falls.  They have 2 daughters.  Ali just graduated from Augustana College with a major in music and will teach in Sioux Falls this fall.  Carli is an art education major at South Dakota State University.
