Meet Our Artistic Director!

Pat was a concert pianist and appeared with major symphony orchestras including the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington, D.C.  She is frequently requested to accompany musical artists.

Pat is choir director and organist at Hope Lutheran Church, Gulf Cove.  She currently teaches private voice and piano students.

As artistic director of the North Port Chorale, Pat has responsibility for the selection and presentation of the Chorale's music and auditions.
