Pamela Benitez
President

Pam Benitez is a successful entrepreneur who has operated several regional businesses, including Advanced Business Center and Jonland Type & Design, with an emphasis on providing attentive, customized service and value. These skills, and her love of people, have been an asset to PRCO for two decades. Pam’s association with the orchestra began in 1994, the year PRCOrchestra was formed, when she began working with PRCOrchestra co-founder Nancy Muenzer in producing concert program books and other materials. Soon, she began helping Nancy with the annual Benefit Tea and Gala, and since Pam always loved classical music, the more involved she got, the more committed she became. Pam also contributes her leadership talents to local chambers of commerce and other worthy groups, in the process forging strong bonds for PRCOrchestra throughout the northwest suburban area.
