“Debby has been a vital part of what we do here already,” said Maria McNeil, CEO and Artistic Director of McNeil Music Center.  “She has been adding her expertise to our recitals and performances for several years, so becoming a part of our teaching staff is an easy and natural fit.  We are delighted she is joining us this way.”

She has provided music for Somerset Community College productions and has appeared with instrumentalists and vocalists at several Master Musician Festivals.

McDonald has been associated with McNeil Music Center for the past three years and says she is honored to now officially be part of its mission to bring music to the community.
