Hello! My name is Elleka Okerstrom and I am a soprano starting my PD in Voice at SMU Meadows this fall, studying with Virginia DuPuy. I'm thrilled to begin studying and working in the Dallas music scene and would love to connect with you! I am comfortable performing and teaching in a variety of genres but primarily opera and musical theater. I have sung in choirs and in churches for much of my life and am comfortable preparing and learning music quickly. I am very comfortable in a teaching position having taught voice to a wide range of students over the past several years.
I recently completed my Master of Music in Voice at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music having previously graduated cum laude from DePauw University with my Bachelor of Music in Voice. Additionally, I have extensive experience working in music entrepreneurship having held positions in the 21st Century Musician Initiative at DePauw University and at the Office of Entrepreneurship and Career Development at the Jacobs School of Music.
