Musical Background

Diane's Musical background features mentorship with the late, great Sebastian Engleberg (Frederica Von Stade’s early voice teacher who lead her to win the Metropolitan Opera Auditions).

Diane was also mentored by Anthony Amato (Amato Opera,); dramatic soprano Doris Jung (Prima Donna Munich and Stuttgart Operas).

Both Felix Popper (Conductor, New York City Opera), and Placido Domingo, were advisors for her first company, American Singers Ensemble. She is forever grateful for the invaluable gifts that all these great artists shared with her.
