I am an accomplished pianist with over four decades of experience accompanying vocalists, choruses, instrumental soloists, and classical ballet classes. An avid chamber musician as well (member of ACMP), I have participated in the annual Wellesley Composers and Chamber Music Conference. I am currently a collaborative pianist for the Challey School of Music at North Dakota State University (NDSU), and an accompanist in the Music Department of Concordia College, Moorhead, Minnesota. Prior to moving to the Midwest, I was Senior Accompanist for Chorus Angelicus and Gaudeamus choirs, Torrington (CT); Accompanist for the Berkshire Children's Chorus based in Sheffield, (MA); Choral Dept. Accompanist at Washington Montessori School (CT); Music Director of the Litchfield (CT) United Methodist Church, and Organist and Choir Director for the Falls Village (CT) Congregational Church. As a freelance accompanist, I have worked with the choral department in private schools, including Taft School (CT), Avon Old Farms (Avon, CT), Gilbert School (Winsted, CT), Monument Mountain (Great Barrington, MA) HS, and Litchfield (CT) High School, have worked as an accompanist for high schools musicals and the Gilbert & Sullivan Light Opera Company (CT), and have assisted in preparing recitals with CONCORA (CT Choral Artists in Hartford) as well as with students in the Hartt School of Music Community Division. I also worked frequently with voice studios and opera singers. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about my availability.
