About Deana

As a professional vocal accompanist, I have played for opera companies across the northern and southeastern US, including: Opera Festival of New Jersey, Florida Grand Opera, Indianapolis Opera, and Washington Opera. As a resident of Portland, Maine, I have played with the Portland Symphony Orchestra, Portland Opera Repertory Theater, Portland Players, the Maine Gay Men's Chorus, and the Oratorio Chorale in Brunswick.


I am currently the Music Director of the Unity Church of Greater Portland, and accompanist for two remarkable choral groups: Women in Harmony, a 56-member women's chorus, and Wescustago Youth Chorale, an auditioned ensemble of southern Maine high school students, in Freeport, Maine.


I hold a bachelor's degree in Music Education from Potsdam College, Potsdam, NY, and a master's degree in Coaching and Accompanying from Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ.
