Caitlin Carlos received her Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Redlands and her Bachelor of Music degree, also in Vocal Performance, from Chapman University. She is especially interested in the intersection between musicology, performance and music education; her final master’s recital at the University of Redlands was a multi-faceted narrative of the lives Robert and Clara Schumann, incorporating a theatrical narration, as well as the songs, letters and diary entries of the Schumanns.
Caitlin is currently working on a Ph.D. in historical musicology at the University of Southern California. Although her academic focus has shifted to musicology, she is still very active in the vocal arts program at USC where she has recently had the opportunity to work with multiple contemporary composers including Jake Heggie and Lori Laitman. With other musicians in the Los Angeles area, Caitlin is helping to create and will be premiering a small song cycle for soprano, guitar and violin, setting poems by Christiana Georgetta Rossetti (sister of Dante Gabriel Rossetti).
