He currently serves Bethel United Methodist Church of Chewsville, Maryland, and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick as pianist and choral accompanist.

Nick has also collaborated with numerous notable vocal artists, including soprano Lisa Dodson and baritone Thomas Jones, who noted: "Nick Int Veldt has accompanied me on several occasions but most memorably on a challenging and eclectic recital performed in Maryland in 2010. Nick's sense of artistry was complemented by polished skill and facility. Being an accomplished pianist doesn't always make a great accompanist but that is not the case with Nick. He sensed where I was going and what was needed instinctively and the finished product was brilliant." Dr. Gerald Mack, founder of the Great Waters Music Festival, adds: "Nick In tVeldt is one the finest pianists I have ever worked with, and he is a sensitive and complete artist on the keyboard. His versatility and knowledge of the voice make him the ideal partner for accompanying singers."

In addition to maintaining a large piano studio of about thirty students of all ages and all levels from beginner to advanced, Nick is an adjunct teacher at Barbara Ingram School for the Arts in Hagerstown, Maryland. When not practicing, accompanying, or teaching, Nick likes to hike, bicycle, spend time with his wife, Deborah, or sip a margarita with good friends.
