Ms. Marchione

Ms. Abby Marchione grew up in Buckingham and is an alumna of Holicong and CB East, where she was an active participant in the choir programs at both schools. She earned her Bachelor of Music Education with a concentration in voice from Elizabethtown College, where she is also working towards a Master of Music Education with a focus in Peacebuilding. 

She began her professional teaching career as the middle and high school choral director at the Northern Lebanon School District in Lebanon County, PA. There, she also served as the music director for the high school theatrical productions, which included vocal music instruction and conducting the pit orchestra. In October 2020, Ms. Marchione returned to the Central Bucks music department as a faculty member. She taught general music in the elementary virtual academy for a year and assisted in instrumental music positions before starting at West in 2021. She has taught all grade levels from first through twelfth in Central Bucks. Her work at West includes directing all five choral ensembles, teaching music electives, and vocal music directing the Harlequin Club spring musicals. She founded CB West's contemporary a cappella group, Chord Street, in the fall of 2023. 

Ms. Marchione has been a part of various CB Summer Music Camps since 2014, first as an intern and now as a faculty member. She has also served as a voice faculty member at the Elizabethtown College Summer Music Camp. She is an experienced voice teacher and is active as a choral singer in Vox Philia, a chamber choir that performs in and around Reading, PA. "Vox" regularly collaborates with composers like Will Todd and groups like the Reading Choral Society and Lincoln University Choirs. Much closer to home, she also enjoys performing with her former-teachers-now-colleagues in the annual CB Save the Music concert. Ms. Marchione loves working with other musicians and is thrilled to be part of a thriving music community. When not teaching or performing, she loves spending quality time with her parents, siblings, and friends.
