Deborah Int Veldt has a B.S. in Music Education from the University of Maryland in addition to many years of private training in vocal performance, working with such luminariesas Ruth Drucker and Molly Donnelly. She taught secondary vocal music in the Montgomery County, MD school district for 20 years and has taught voice and piano privately in her home for the past 15 years. In 1994, Ms. Int Veldt joined the Frederick Chorale (where she met her husband Nick) with whom she is a frequent soloist and the soprano section leader. She is the Music Director at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick and leads a 30-voice adult choir there. She has high hopes of starting a children’s chorus at the church in the near future.
Ms. Int Veldt directed the Buckingham’s Choice Singers from 2002-2009 and recently gave a presentation on the aging voice to the Frederick chapter of the American Guild of Organists. When she is not making music, Deb can be found in the garden. She grows much of the food she and Nick consume as well as beautiful flowers and herbs. She also enjoys sewing, quilting and other creative crafts. In her younger days she danced on a professional clogging team for ten years, and still enjoys square- and contra-dancing. She and Nick live in Hagerstown with their small flock of laying hens.
