Stephanie Tubiolo is the incoming Associate Director of Choirs at Princeton University. She spent the past seven years in New Haven, CT, where she worked as a Teaching Artist with the Yale Music in Schools Initiative, eventually serving as its first Postgraduate Fellow. Since 2015, she has developed and directed Morse Chorale, a performance-intensive choir for New Haven Public School students in grades 4-12, and will continue on as its director. Most recently, Morse Chorale was featured at the Connecticut Music Educator’s Association All-State conference, the statewide Superintendent’s retreat, the Urban Music Leadership Conference, in concert with the Yale Camerata, and in frequent performances on their home stage in Sprague Hall at Yale.
In addition to her work as a student on Yale's campus and within the public schools, Stephanie was fortunate to build a strong relationship with New Haven's vibrant artistic community. This past year, she served as the music director of (Be)longing, a new choral/ hip-hop theater piece about coming of age in an age of guns. A joint commission by Virginia Tech and the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, (Be)longing united local activists, singers, rappers, and beatboxers of all different ages in a 6-month process of not only rehearsing but starting provocative and essential conversations within the city.
