“I've depended on Beth's accompanying skills for both my college and community choirs for over ten years.  She is so musically solid there are many things I have come to take for granted until I have to bring in a sub when she's away.  She can play any combination of parts needed from the score, and always plays with a natural responsiveness and musicality.  And my singers love her easygoing and professional disposition.  It's safe to say I'd truly be at a loss without her!”—Thomas Lloyd—Haverford College and Bucks County Choral Society
