Stephanie Tubiolo is the Associate Director of Choirs at Princeton University, where she has led the Trego Singers, co-led the Chamber Choir, and music directed in the theater department since September 2017. She also serves as faculty advisor for the newly-formed Trenton Youth Singers. Before joining Princeton’s faculty, she spent seven years in New Haven, CT, where she worked as a Teaching Artist with the Yale Music in Schools Initiative, becoming its first Postgraduate Fellow upon finishing her undergraduate and graduate studies in 2016. Since 2015, she has developed and directed Morse Chorale, a performance-intensive choir for New Haven Public School students in grades 4-12, and continues to serve as its director alongside her work at Princeton. 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 March of 2018, they visited Princeton’s campus for the first time to sing in concert with the Princeton University Glee Club and the world-renowned UK-based professional choir Tenebrae.
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.
