As Director of Music and Liturgy, Beth is definitely my go-to accompanist for church services, weddings and funerals.  She plays musically, sight-reads beautifully and can play anything.   What I most respect about Beth is that she takes the time to rehearse and is well-prepared when we work together. Beth is a vocalist’s dream-come-true  accompanist! She is not only a talented and competent musician, but is also a delight to work with!”
