Adjunct Professor of Voice
Kathleen M. LoPresti, Soprano, holds the degrees MEd Music (vocal concentration) and MA Educational Technology (instructional design), and she is currently in the dissertation phase of a PhD in Education. As an undergraduate student, she studied music, political science and history, fields paralleling Kathleen’s research interests in music history (particularly regarding vocal music) and music in times of conflict. Kathleen studied voice with Pamela Coburn.
Although she has studied and performed operatic works, Kathleen’s performance concentration is on recital and concert repertoire. Kathleen has been the featured soprano soloist in such works as Bach’s Magnificat, Brahm’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Requiem, Poulenc’s Gloria and Vivaldi’s Gloria. As a graduate assistant, she was the Assistant Director of the Opera Workshop at Rollins College and, currently, Kathleen is active teaching master classes at vocal/choral clinics. In addition to serving on the voice faculty at Rollins since 2003, Kathleen teaches voice at Saint James Conservatory of Performing Arts (COPA).
