Mary Ann Ybarra
Coro Lux Accompanist
Mary Ann Ybarra, pianist, now enjoys living out her aspirations of being a performing pianist. Her degrees include Doctor of Musical Arts from The University of Texas at Austin, Master of Music from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC and Bachelor of Music from Texas Tech University in Lubbock. Before moving to Albuquerque, she taught piano, pedagogy and theory keyboard classes for 18 years in South Bend, IN at Indiana University at South Bend, Saint Mary’s College, Bethel College and maintained a home teaching studio. However, it is here in Albuquerque that she has pursued her heart’s desire of sharing music with others through performing. Not only does she collaborate on individual instrumental and vocal recitals, which she plays at least 5-10 per semester, but she also works with vocal, operatic, and orchestral ensembles. She is thrilled and honored to be working with Coro Lux.
