Assistant Director of Music

Diane Colin

Diane currently serves as our Assistant Director of Music. She has been involved in music ministry in Lutheran Churches her whole life, having sung in church choirs from around age 5, many years of piano and flute playing in services, director of the children’s choir at Augsburg Lutheran-Winston-Salem, and teaching in her own music studio. She studied flute at the NC School of the Arts and at Salem College, where she taught in the Music Department. Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ is where she studied choral music and choral conducting. She retired from teaching, only to return to Vaughan Elementary as their music teacher, twice a week. It’s the perfect job! In addition to worship and music planning, she taught many years in Confirmation Ministry and Sunday School for all ages, pre-school to adult, teaching occasionally at Lakeside Lutheran. She is active in Eastern NC Via de Cristo. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, she has lived and worshipped in many places, most recently at Christ the King Lutheran in Cary. While there, she sang in their choir and was privileged to sing her way through Europe on six different tours. In her spare time she loves gardening, kayaking, learning new instruments and playing with other musicians, reading, traveling, cooking and her dog, Maddie. Her family includes husband, John and son, Brent.
