About the Accompanist

Dean Mora

Dean Mora is a native of Los Angeles, and just moved to Sacramento about two years ago
(and is enjoying the lack of excessive freeway gridlock!). Dean has been enjoying a
career as a professional pianist and organist for the past 25 years; highlights of this
career include leading a big band, playing for ballet companies, accompanying silent movies,
music director of numerous musical theatre productions (most recently, WEST SIDE STORY at
the Woodland Opera House), recording the background music tracks for Main Street at Disneyland,
and many gigs involving a wide range of musical genres including jazz, rock, classical, and Latin.
Dean was the accompanist for Bonita High School (La Verne, CA) for 17 years, accompanying their
award-winning chamber ensemble and mass choirs. He is currently the organist/choir director for
St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Woodland CA.

On top of all of this, he and his wife Adrian are expecting a baby in November!
