Lori Wiest, past-president introduces Frank
Dave Frishberg once called Frank DeMiero, "the Vince Lombardi of Vocal Jazz.
Though Frank is an incredible professional, what is even more impressive is his personal, caring devotion to individuals and family.
Frank's devotion to family is unwavering; and, everyone is Frank's family. He has inspired more than one generation of students and educators with his endearing "Mama's spaghetti" stories. Thank goodness five year-old Frank was trapped underneath an accordion until he learned to play it, or we wouldn't have the musician who stands before us today. His metaphor to explain when something just isn't quite right about taking a beautiful drive at sunset in a convertible Alpha Romeo … with your sister. … Those stories were so much more than entertainment. He takes whatever approach is necessary to help anyone who gets the chance to learn from him. With Frank, you always get the opportunity to find your true capabilities.
His impressive resume is one with which we are probably familiar; but, let's do the short version so that the picture of this great educator becomes clear. Frank went to Olympic College, EWU and CWU. He taught high school for nine years, then founded Soundsation, still a top Vocal Jazz group in the world, while teaching at Edmonds Community College. Frank and his family provided the Northwest with the finest Vocal Jazz Camp for 25 years and served more than 6,000 students and educators with the best experiences with which to return and share with their programs. Frank served as the Chairman of the Music Department as well during his long and successful tenure at Edmonds using administrative skills that he lent also to many professional organizations like MENC, IAJE and ACDA in important leadership roles. It became clear that the considerable influence he had built by that time meant he could play an important role in supporting music education and educators as the Supervisor of Music for Edmonds School District for thirteen years. He was the Director of Vocal Jazz at UW for two years. Frank continues to help educators with his company, Sound Music Publications, through which he and Kenny Kraintz are able to channel their numerous gifts. Frank teaches (students and educators), adjudicates, clinics, conducts, composes and arranges. And still Frank continues to 'walk the walk' giving us the finest examples of Vocal Jazz and Choral music-making with his groups, Seattle Jazz Singers and Sno-King Community Chorale.
Frank has spent his life creating beauty and integrity in others. Whether it be through his choirs or the many honor groups he continues to direct, presenting fine workshops or providing fine literature, he builds us into better educators and better people.
