Kelliann is honored and thrilled to join the St. Francis community
as the school music teacher and the parish music director!
Kelliann and her family were blessed to be a part of the music
ministry at St. Matthew Catholic Church throughout her childhood,
which led her to pursuing her Bachelor of the Arts in
Music and Spanish from the University of Portland. Kelliann
then ventured to Los Angeles where she earned her Master of
Fine Arts from Cal Arts in Vocal Performance. During her time
in LA, Kelliann taught music classes at a university, elementary
schools, summer camps, and her private studio. She currently
leads workshops for church choirs, and teaches voice and piano
lessons to students in the Portland area.
In addition to teaching,
Kelliann has enjoyed performing opera, musical theater, choral,
and contemporary music throughout the west coast and Eastern
Europe, as well as recording and producing music for film in Los
Angeles. She thanks St. Francis for the wonderful opportunity to
teach and serve through music.
