Originally from Olathe, Kansas, military life brought Jane and her husband, Gene, to Fairfax where Jane has been the organist and pianist since 1999 for Providence Presbyterian. She is also the principal accompanist and vocal coach for the University Chorale (100+ voices) of George Mason University, and accompanist for four of the youth choirs under the auspices of the Fairfax Choral Society. Jane is frequently asked to accompany around the state of Virginia at local, district and state level choral festivals. Jane earned a BM in Piano Performance at Emporia State University, Emporia, KS and an MM in Piano Performance at Sam Houston University in Huntsville, TX. She studies organ with Dr. Theodore Guerrant and William Neil.
