Diane is our new Director of Music. She came on board in August, getting the choir and other music programs ready for the fall season.
Diane comes to us after serving in the capacity of choir director and organist for St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Devon, Pa.
She is a Pennsylvania lady, having been born, raised, and educated in the Lehigh Valley and attended Moravian College in Bethlehem for two years. As a youth in high school, Diane was musically inclined. She participated with the choir as the accompanist, the marching band and concert band playing the baritone. In addition to her studies at Moravian, Diane augmented her formal studies by going back to school, and in 2006 she completed her music degree, majoring in organ performance at West Chester University.
Diane has had a long-time passion for music and started formal training with piano lessons while in the second grade. When she was in college, she developed a passion for church music. She became the choir director for her church at that time and also the substitute organist.
She and her husband Ray, who is also a professional musician, live in Chester County. They have three grown children living in Boston, Mt.Joy, and Downingtown.
