Kelsey De Pree grew up in Michigan and now calls the State of Washington home. Music has played a significant role in her life. Kelsey began singing at the age of two. Throughout her life, she has participated in private music lessons and many different musical groups including musical theatre, pit orchestra, symphonic band, jazz band, and around twenty different choirs.
Kelsey earned a bachelor’s degree in Multi-Age Choral Music Education from Cedarville University and is currently earning a master’s degree in Music Education at Azusa Pacific University while teaching music part time in school. One day, Kelsey hopes to teach children’s choirs and music for students with special learning needs.
Music has provided the opportunity for Kelsey to be a part of a couple small recording sessions as well as singing in choirs for concerts of artists Emmett Cahill, Sandi Patty, and Travis Cottrell. When Kelsey is not doing music, she enjoys writing, reading, drawing, dancing, and composing. Kelsey loves music because it helps people build bridges where society and culture have put up walls.
She has sung with Cedarville University Jazz Band, Cedarville Women’s Choir, Concert Chorale, played percussion in Cedarville University Symphonic Band, Azusa Pacific Choral Scholars, Azusa Pacific University Choir, and Azusa Pacific Chamber Singers as well as been the Assistant conductor for the Azusa Pacific Masterworks Chorale.
