Diana Skinner

Diana began violin studies at age 7 and vocal studies in college at the University of Northern Colorado. She pursued both disciplines through graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin, where she earned a Master’s degree in vocal performance. Her professional career began with New York City Opera, singing in the regular chorus and performing small roles. She appeared extensively with the Brooklyn Bach Festival, New York Festival Orchestra, and Musica Hebraica. She served for a decade as vocal adjudicator for the LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts (“Fame”) in Manhattan and was a consultant to the New York State Board of Education’s arts program. She was a founding member of Choralfest in Denver, a group of premier professional singers and instrumentalists who performed large choral works. She appears regularly as alto soloist with the Arkansas Choral Society and members of the Arkansas Symphony, the Mendelssohn Choir of Connecticut, and Colorado’s Amadeus Choir & Orchestra. She and her siblings created a non-profit organization, Amadeus Chamber Ensemble, in order to produce classical music concerts in Arkansas, Colorado, and Tennessee. Diana resides in Tennessee with her husband; their son is a graduate of Vanderbilt University. Diana plays violin in both an amateur string quartet and flute quartet.
