Stephanie Benton

Stephanie recently moved to California after spending four years in Ramstein, Germany, where her husband Andrew was stationed with the USAFE band. Stephanie is a pianist and choral conductor, with degrees in both subjects from the University of Denver.

While in Germany, she directed a large international choir, played at a Presbyterian church, and taught piano lessons. Stephanie originates from Colorado, where her most recent positions were teaching college music courses and directing choirs at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs; and Pikes Peak Community College, as well as leading community choirs and church groups.

Last January, Stephanie met up with her choir from Germany in New York City, where they sang in Carnegie Hall with 200 other singers, which was a special treat. She also is a guest conductor with her choirs in Colorado on occasion. In addition to playing at Rockville, Stephanie also plays for the Orpheus-West chamber choir in Vacaville.
