Accompanist Resources

Many times accompanists are needed for a variety of performances. Often, an accompanist is needed out-of-town, and having a list of resources is very beneficial. Although this is not a comprehensive list, all accompanists included here are current members of UMTA, in alphabetical order. If you would like to be listed, please contact Dr. Christie Sowby at cksowby@gmail.com.
