Ms. Davenport has a rich and varied background in music, beginning from childhood where she studied piano, theory, and elementary composition in her mother's piano studio. She grew up singing in the church choir where her father was the choir director and her mother, the pianist and organist. As a flutist, she has performed frequently both in ensembles and as a soloist throughout the years, particularly while serving in the USMC in the Quantico Marine Band and the Marine Forces Pacific Band. During this time, she served not only as principal flutist but also as the pianist for the jazz combo, big band, and other ensembles as needed. Since 2007, she has spent most of her time on stage as a singer in the Dallas Symphony Chorus. Ms. Davenport has also been the music director at St. Marks United Methodist Church in Mesquite, Texas since 2007, where she is blessed to serve and share her spiritual gifts.
Tish has studied flute with Richard Harrison, attended flute master classes with Leone Buyse and Doriot Anthony Dwyer at Tanglewood (1990). Barbara Hill-Moore and Kathleen Terbeek have both been vocal teachers and mentors.
