What do you call it when a Soprano meets a Keyboard player? Keyprano Duo! Gabriel and Allison met as graduate music students at the University of British Columbia while taking a course called "Art Song Interpretation". Casually they began rehearsing a collaboration for class performances, all the while steadily establishing an artistic partnership which has now gained enthusiastic support for the creation of an official duo; thus, Keyprano Duo!

ABOUT | As an innovative and versatile vocalist, Allison’s expertise is in opera, art song, and musical theater performance. Allison received excellent classical voice training at Carnegie Mellon University (BFA: 2017), the College-Conservatory of Music CCM (MM: 2017), and the University of British Columbia, where she is currently pursuing a DMA in Opera, and has completed all but the dissertation. Allison creates captivating interpretations by uniting ease of vocal facility, magnetic stage presence with what audiences have described as her "striking ability to draw you in so that you can't look away." Inspired by the works of female composers, Allison thoughtfully designs programs reflecting the female perspective. 

AWARDS | A shimmering, warm, and agile soprano, Allison's most recent work includes Countess (Le Nozze di Figaro; UBC Opera), Mary Crawford (Mansfield Park; UBC Opera), Contessa di Folleville (Rossini's Il Viaggio a Reims; UBC Opera), Flora (The Turn of the Screw; CCM Opera), and Suor Genovieffa (Suor Angelica; CCM Opera). Allison was a finalist in the 2019 Patricia Corbett Competition and the Kristin Lewis Scholarship Foundation Competition. Modern opera roles present her with an energizing challenge for which she is uniquely prepared to approach through her extensive experience in storytelling, winning Best Actress at the Tommy Tune Awards and several other acting competitions in Texas. As the winner of Best Actress for the State of Texas via The Tommy Tune Awards, Allison qualified and competed as a finalist on the Broadway Stage at the Minskoff Theater in the 2013 week-long TV aired competition, The National High School Musical Theater Awards (The Jimmy Awards). Now pursuing classical music, Allison presents unique and full-bodied operatic characters by combining methodical score study and acting preparation methods.

DUO | In fostering her creative trajectory for collaborative endeavors and innovation in programming for modern audiences, Allison and American pianist, Gabriel Landstedt, founded a small chamber ensemble in 2021 called Keyprano Duo, which debuted in May 2022 as a Finalist ensemble for Astral Artists’ national search for their roster. Their ensemble mission is to promote equity and inclusion of underrepresented groups, which they achieve through thoughtful programming highlighting composers who identify in these groups, especially celebrating women creatives. As Keyprano Duo, they participated in the 2022 summer festival, The Collaborative Piano Institute, where they studied collaborative techniques with Martin Katz, Kathy Kelly, Howard Watkins, Martha Guth, Ana Maria Otamendi, and more.

VOICE INSTRUCTOR | Allison is also an experienced voice instructor and enjoys seeing the impact of her mentorship on student progress, knowing that achieving success in a voice lesson can translate much further in a student’s academic careers than in music alone. Since 2018, Allison has taught voice lessons to all voice types, styles of music, levels of experience, male and female voices, from diverse academic and artistic backgrounds. Allison’s students’ record of success shows winning spots in opera Artist Diploma programs, bachelors in musical theater, and professional theater companies across North America. Through her artistic direction and coaching, she led the CMU Treblemakers to First Prize for their a cappella performance in the 2017 ICCA Quarterfinals in Pittsburgh. In the classroom as the voice instructor for UBC undergraduate music education majors, Allison has taught dramatic interpretation skills, a crash-course in IPA, diction for singers (Italian, German, French, English), navigating registers and vocal health topics. Allison enjoys the moments of meaningful student mentorship that her job requires, and is devoted to nurturing student excellence and ambition, offering her support to student concerns.

Allison enjoys spending time outdoors, often going on lengthy hikes, which she feels parallels how we experience music. On the journey up the mountain are divergent paths, steps, and stones to maneuver. Every traveler carries with them unique stories that guide their journey. But the resulting mountainous peaks view is the beauty we all share, grow from, and take home with us.
