A 2023 Ewing Arts Award winner for Excellence in Community Engagement, Stacie Pirozzi has spent more than 25 years devoted to educating and sharing music with others.
Her passion for teaching began in Rhinebeck, NY as the Music and Drama Counselor at Ramapo for Children. While at Ramapo, she planned and taught music and drama to 6–14 year-olds with autism, attention deficit disorder and Tourette’s syndrome.
After completing her undergraduate degree, Stacie found her calling as a private voice teacher, and later expanded into piano lessons as well. In addition to her private studio, currently located at 17ROX Artist Studios in Keene, she has taught at prestigious schools such as the Noble and Greenough School (Dedham, MA), Xaverian Brothers High School (Westwood, MA), The Winchendon School (Winchendon, MA) and Saint Joseph Regional School (Keene, NH).
Although Stacie was trained as a classical singer, she brings a unique flexibility to her teaching, incorporating a wide variety of musical genres and styles, including musical theatre, pop, rock and jazz.
From children to retirees, beginners to professionals, she has prepared students of all ages and abilities for an extensive array of performances - from school and local theatre productions to professional Broadway performances and sporting events.
Stacie’s own performance experience is equally vast. She has performed with opera companies throughout the east coast in iconic roles such as the Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors with Opera by the Bay, Mother Goose in The Rake’s Progress with Ithaca Opera Association and the Third Lady in Mozart’s The Magic Flute with Boston Lyric Opera for Young Audiences.
She has appeared as a concert soloist performing such diverse repertoire as Mozart’s Requiem with Chorus pro Musica, Haydn’s Paukenmesse with Boston Boy Choir, Corigliano’s Fern Hill with Cayuga Vocal Ensemble and Osborne’s Souls on Fire with narrator Leonard Nimoy.
An avid performer of new music, Stacie has premiered many works including Garibaldi’s Soon I’ll be There from Roses in a Forbidden Garden at The Colonial Theatre in Keene. She also performed the title role in scenes from Doncaster’s Coriander and a Penny’s Worth of Lonesome at Warebrook Contemporary Music Festival in Vermont, as well as Charles Osborne’s Kings and Fishermen with Zamir Chorale of Boston.
Since relocating to the Monadnock Region of New Hampshire, Stacie is the alto soloist with trio Ave Cantora, and was the mezzo-soprano soloist with The Colonial Theatre’s Opera to Go program, a small group of performers bringing the opera experience to local schools. She is also a member of the Monadnock Ukulele Group (MUG).
She is a long-time member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and recently became an Arts Ambassador with Monadnock Arts Alive.
Stacie holds a Master of Music in vocal pedagogy from the New England Conservatory of Music and a Bachelor of Music in vocal performance and music education from Ithaca College.
She lives in Fitzwilliam, NH with her husband, Mike, and their two dogs.
