Donita Roulsten began taking piano lessons while in early elementary school and began her accompanying career in 6th grade when her small church was in need of a piano player.  She studied organ in college under Miss JoAnn Noble and has had church organ accompanying posts consistently since that time.  For 25 years she accompanied in the Porterville Public schools and at the community college.  During her time with the high school choirs she had the pleasure of performing for award winning choirs on their travels throughout California, to the East Coast, Hawaii, Canada and Italy.  She has been accompanying for the Sierra Vocal Arts Ensemble for the past 8 years and is currently the Organist-Accompanist for the First Untied Methodist Church in Porterville.
