Jose Kevin Simerilla Romero

"Stetson is a school that's very high on musicianship. And so I feel that Stetson contributed a lot on that aspect of my career. Stetson is also such a choir-heavy school, and choir is very focused on phrasing, on clear diction, delivery of the text, which as a singer you can translate that to your own personal technique."

Jose (Kevin) Simerilla Romero '20 Music - Voice, award-winning tenor who in 2018 worked with the LA Opera while still a student at Stetson

Lauren Prestifilippo

"From programming recitals with my outstanding accompanist and performing in small ensembles at downtown and on-campus events, to performing with the university choirs and opera theatre program, I had the privilege of experiencing close collaboration among the student musicians. I have grown so much from working with my wonderful peers in the School of Music and the Honors Program."

Lauren Prestifilippo '20 Music-Voice, winner of Stetson's Scholastic Award
