Raised in north-central Pennsylvania, Liesl Schiavone moved to Calvert County in 2010 after receiving her Bachelor of Music from Grove City College and subsequently accepting the position Director of Choral Activities at Patuxent High School in Lusby, MD. While at Patuxent High School, she increased enrollment in the choral program by more than 100%, created and directed the Patuxent High School Glee Club, took an active role in the school’s Musical and Theatrical productions and qualified for two State Festivals with her Chamber Choir.
After the birth of her first daughter in 2013, she decided to leave the classroom to stay home and focus her musical instruction within the community. In addition to directing the Calvert Choirs for SMYOC, she keeps busy as a featured soloist, private lesson instructor, and Music and Drama Tutor for Anchor Christian Collaborative.
She and her husband, Matthew, reside in Chesapeake Beach with their three children, Cecilia, Oliver and Penelope. Liesl is looking forward to another successful and exciting year of music making with SMYOC in Calvert County.
