Waverly Heights UCC was very pleased to welcome Vanessa Mortinson as our new Music Director in April 2017
Vanessa is a life-long musician with a particular love for piano and ensemble music. She began playing and singing professionally by age 14 and as a young performer she was fortunate to engage in an eclectic array of music from jazz to classical to musical theater. In her college years she was actively involved in the George Fox University music department eventually assuming the role of Choir President of the Concert Choir, the university’s most advanced choral ensemble. In recent years Vanessa has made a career in digital marketing but keeps music as a core pursuit in her life. She works as an accompanist, teaches piano, and plays small solo shows at art galleries and the like. Her goal is to help foster a nurturing music environment for the Waverly community and she is eager to learn as well as lead.
