Assistant Director/Choreographer - Deb Van Erdewyk

Deb became a member of the Acappella Omaha Chorus in 1976.  She has been a front line dancer and Choreographer for over 30 years.

As time passed, Deb became interested in directing.  In 1998, she became an assistant director for the Acappella Omaha Chorus.  Her love of teaching music and dance brings review to the chorus each Monday evening to begin the rehearsal.  What an amazing journey this has been to be part of an organization that gives women an opportunity to try a variety of jobs that they are interested in.  Sometimes it leads to something you weren’t even expecting to fall in love with.  It becomes a part of your soul.  “There is nothing more wonderful than helping to direct a chorus of women that love what they do as much as you do!” She has also been a member in a wonderful quartet, “Our Choice” for several years.  All of these adventures and challenges can lead us to become even better than we thought we could be.  Don’t miss the adventure; you really might enjoy the ride!
