Elissa Ribbens – Accompanist
Elissa lives in De Pere and is a junior at Saint Norbert College, studying as a piano performance major. In addition to church liturgy, she accompanies various concerts, musicals, weddings, and other events in the Green Bay area, as well as singing with the SNC chamber choir and WAMI award-winning trio Tre Principesse. She most recently served as associate music director, rehearsal accompanist, and pit keyboard in Saint Norbert Music Theater’s summer production of Mary Poppins. After undergrad, Elissa will immediately begin studying at an undecided graduate school for a master’s degree in either Piano Performance or Piano Pedagogy/Accompaniment. This will most likely lead to a freelance career in various accompaniment positions, hopefully including touring with musical productions as a pit orchestra member. She plans on starting a private piano studio soon. Elissa is looking forward to new experiences this year such as starting organ lessons, competing in a concerto competition, preparing for her junior recital, and playing for St. John’s!
