Featured Singer: Diana Nevills
Do you have a role model that inspired you to go into music?
I credit my parents and childhood music teachers for inspiring me to pursue music performance. Thank you Mom, Dad, Delreen Haffenrichter and Louise May for fostering young talent.
How did you get interested in Early Music?
I came to know and love Early Music through singing in University Singers at DePaul and the Saint Alphonsus Church Choir. There's something satisfying and smart about singing four part polyphany every Sunday morning for several years.
Do you have a favorite piece or concert you've sung with Marion Consort?
Favorite moment piece and moment with Marion Consort was Gabrieli's antiphonal "O Jesu mi dulcissime" with Khorikos in NYC. Definitely a wow moment.
Anything else you can tell us about yourself or your musical journey?
Studied Vocal Performance and Music Education at DePaul University. I'm a rocking K-8 music teacher at USCN Marquez Charter School in Chicago and President of non-for-profit Ensemble Alioni Georgian Choir of Chicago.
