Oral History Information
Nancy Vernon and her husband, Gene Monnig, own and operate Cadenza Music in St. Paul, Minnesota. Nancy is very active with the music teachers in and around the area and works hard to build those relationships so the store can best serve the needs of teachers and students alike. The store, which celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2015, became a strong supporter of all things music in the area, a fact for which Nancy is particularly proud. Her quest to provide the needed resources and materials for school and private teachers has been a key factor in the store’s success.
