About Me:

I am a performer, teacher and scientist inspired by the differences that make each person unique. I have a background in classical vocal performance, arts administration and plant science and I deeply treasure the natural world.

Choral Music and Voice Teaching

Del Simone is also an active choral performer. She has recently performed with Boulder’s Ars Nova, 21V, Volti, San Francisco Ballet, Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, Berkeley Symphony, and ODC among others. Del Simone taught music theory and vocal pedagogy for the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir and currently maintains a small private voice studio. She enjoys approaching the challenges of vocal instruction with positive energy and optimism and celebrates the differences that make each voice unique.

She also actively seeks works by female and POC composers for her own performance and for her students.
