Debra Lonergan performs with the early 17th century ensembles Voci dell'Anima, Anaphantasia, La Gente d’Orfeo, and the period string quartet Mirabel, as well as Milwaukee's Ensemble Musical Offering. She has played continuo in concert for several of today’s leading early music soloists, among them, Jaap Schroeder, Stanley Ritchie, Marilyn McDonald and John Holloway, and she concertizes in a variety of settings both locally and throughout the United States.

As a long-standing member of the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra in Detroit, Ms. Lonergan began to study and specialize in early music in 1985. She then worked extensively with Ann Arbor’s American Baroque Ensemble, as well as its predecessor, Ars Musica, and participated in the 1989 Michigan MozartFest with Roger Norrington, as well as a twenty-city national tour celebrating the 1985 Bach anniversary year.

Ms. Lonergan has made an extensive study of string pedagogy, and for nearly a decade was an academic program administrator for Detroit’s Center for Creative Studies-Institute of Music and Dance, serving hundreds of students from the greater metropolitan area of Detroit. With nearly 30 years of experience teaching all ages, she maintains an active private studio.
