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 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, produced by Yarlung Records, which showcases the choir's 2017 summer tour program. In May of 2018, Katie performed the soprano solos in a CSUF performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah featuring alumnus Rod Gilfry, and conducted by Maestro John Alexander. With the CSUF opera department, Katie has played the roles of 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 recent achievements include third place in this year’s Music Associates Concerto and Aria Competition, as well as first place in 2016. She was also the recipient of the music faculty nominated Theodore Presser Scholarship Award for 2017.
