Stephanie Tubiolo is the incoming Assistant 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.
Speaking of her recent appointment, Tubiolo shares:
“I am tremendously honored to join such a vibrant music department, and I could not be more excited to make music with such dynamic students and artists. I have long admired the ambition and success of Princeton’s adventurous choral program and am eager to be part of it.”
Gabriel Crouch, Director of Choral Activities, adds:
“Stephanie comes to us as one of the most promising choral leaders of her generation, and a musician with an unflinching belief in the value of music in education and in community. Whether working with beginners or veterans, Stephanie’s approachability, and the infectious joy with which she expresses her music, will serve our young singers brilliantly, and help us to continue to expand the range of choral opportunities on campus.”
Stephanie earned her MM in Choral Conducting at the Yale School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music, where she studied with Marguerite Brooks, Jeffrey Douma, and David Hill. As a graduate student, her experience as a chorister and conductor was extensive; most notably, she performed, recorded, and toured in the Yale Schola Cantorum and co-directed the choir at the University Church in Yale. She earned her B.A. in Music from Yale College in 2014.
