Currently finishing her studies in vocal performance with Professor Patricia Prunty at the Cal State University Fullerton School of Music, Katie Martini is a classically trained vocalist with a passion for collaborative music making.
As a member of the CSUF University Singers under the direction of Dr. Robert Istad, Katie has had the privilege of traveling and performing internationally. She’s toured with the ensemble in New York, Paris, Sweden, Estonia, Finland, and St. Petersburg, Russia. In the choir's 2012 tour to New York, she performed as a soloist on Tarik O’regan’s The Ecstasies Above at Carnegie Hall. She is also a featured soloist on Nostos: The Homecoming of Music by Yarlung Records, which showcases the choir's latest tour program. Most recently, Katie performed the soprano solos in a CSUF performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah. The performance featured CSUF alumnus Rod Gilfry, and was conducted by John Alexander.
Katie also performs in the opera productions at CSUF. Here, she’s been delighted to play La Princesse in Maurice Ravel’s L’enfent et les Sortilèges, Alice Ford in Otto Nicolai’s The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Fiordiligi in Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte.
Some of Katie’s most recent achievements include receiving the CSUF music faculty nominated Theodore Presser Scholarship Award, as well as winning first place in the voice division of the 2016 CSUF Music Associates Concerto and Aria Competition.
