Diane Thompson, Accompanist
Diane began piano lessons at age seven, taking lessons for eight years. At San Jose State College in California (now San Jose State University) she began working as an accompanist for vocal classes, graduating in 1964 with a BA in music (as a piano major) and a k-8 teacher’s certificate. She and her family moved to Port Townsend in 1977, opening a piano studio with up to 30-40 students per week. Diane was the accompanist for the Port Townsend Community Chorus for 30 years. She continues to work with them as a rehearsal pianist and plays for a number of churches, including Trinity. She loves the “support role” of accompanist. It brings her great joy!
