At Transcendence, we are very deliberate when we seek outside help. Sometimes, finding like-minded people can be difficult, especially when pursuing a Big Dream. We realized we needed a new perspective to achieve our dream, and we discovered that the Sonoma community has no end of amazing individuals — for example, Andrew Koenigsberg, who is part of the Advisory Council and one of our Board Members

“I attended a Transcendence performance during their first season,” Andrew says. “In the summer of 2012, my husband, Rob, and I saw an advertisement for a Transcendence show in the Sonoma market. After one show, I was hooked. I met with Brad, Stephan, and Amy to ask what I could to do to help them.” Those early meetings around a kitchen table evolved, and Andrew began participating in our Advisory Council. After a few years, we knew we needed to have Andrew as one of our Board Members. Our Board Members and Advisory Council are volunteers, and they are as driven and focused on our success as any member of the Transcendence team. “I was humbled and honored to be asked. Being a Transcendence Board Member is a lot of work. The five of us are very hands-on to ensure everything Transcendence does stays in line with its mission and values. But it’s a labor of love, and I’m honored to be a part of this ‘Big Dream.’”
