  Liz Hopkins, Piano Director Jon Stafford

Liz is re-entering the world of choral accompaniment with her participation in the community chorus. Throughout high school in Pennsylvania, she accompanied five choruses, continuing on to play for the Reed College chorus in Portland, OR. Although not a music major, her physics thesis explored the architectural acoustics of one of the college's music venues. She loves the challenge of playing four(+) choral parts at once, and is enjoying getting to know the music community of Port Townsend as both an accompanist and solo pianist. She arrived here in 2018.
