Rachel Breeden is CYC’s newly appointed Director of Programing.  Born and raised in Centerville, Ohio, Rachel’s love for the Arts started as a young child. She grew up accompanying her grandfather, a local playwright, and her father, the first Artistic Director for the Ensemble Theater of Cincinnati, to shows across the tri-state area.  As she developed her own artistic talents, Mrs. Breeden started her involvement with local children’s theater, school choirs, church performances, and hosting radio and television programming.

After graduating she gained 8 years of hands on marketing, business, and event management experience through her work with Lightborne productions and G2/Local Marketing Corporation.

Now in her 8th season Mrs. Breeden serves as the overseer of operations for all choir programs for the Cincinnati Youth Choir, an Ensemble-in-Residence at her Alma Mater CCM.  Mrs. Breeden also serves the community regularly through her involvement with Milestones Inc.
