Accompanist (Retired 2017)
In May 2017 Lynne Lacomfora, Salisbury Singers’ devoted accompanist for almost 40 years, retired. Lynne’s evocative playing and skillful accompaniment will always be remembered. Her excellence at the keyboard during both rehearsals and performances enhanced the music being performed, bringing the concerts of Salisbury Singers to the highest level. We will miss her easy going manner and cheerful personality and dedication to the chorus.
Lynne began her career playing the organ at St. Joseph’s church in Worcester at age 9. She graduated from Anna Maria College with a degree in piano performance and was awarded first prize in the New England Young Artist Competition as an undergraduate.
She freelanced as accompanist for many years for organizations including the Blackstone Valley Chorus, the Central District Chorus of MA and the National OAKE (Organization of American Kodaly Educators) Convention in Boston. She also accompanied the Salisbury Lyric Opera’s production of Amahl and the Night Visitors for several years. LaComfora has worked as accompanist for several local musical theater productions, including Worcester County Light Opera’s production of 1776 and many productions at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury and Bancroft School in Worcester.
She is retired from a long career as music teacher at Millbury High School
where she was music director/pianist for many musicals. In addition, she was music director/pianist for Booth Productions both at Holy Name High School and at Booth’s summer program in Worcester and Ogunquit, Maine.
Lynne has three children and six grandchildren, who are a great source of delight to her.
