Research Interests

Vangelisti is an avid champion of the music of living composers, and performed the World Premiere of Letting Go, a song cycle by composer Daron Hagen, in the Fall of 2002.  She has also personally collaborated and coached with artists such as Libby Larsen, John Harbison, Daron Hagen, Lowell Liebermann, William Bolcom, Frank Ticheli, Stephen Paulus, Jake Hegge, and Eric Ewazen.  As a well-known educator and artist, she has presented lecture-recitals on both national and international levels at the Texoma and Southern Regional National Association of Teachers of Singing Conventions, the Canadian University Music Society’s annual convention, The International Horn Symposium, The National Opera Association Convention, the Music Teachers National Association Louisiana Chapter Convention, and at the Louisiana Music Educators Association Convention.

In in 2013, Vangelisti performed the American Premiere of two song cycles by Portuguese composer Eurico Carrapatoso: Sete Melodias em Forma de Bruma and Três Poemas Eróticas.  As an American pioneer of Carrapatoso’s music, she has continued to disperse his works for soprano and piano, and soprano, horn, and piano to the U.S. audience, performing the American Premieres of several more song cycles and works: Duas Porcelanas Musicais, Dois Poemas de Miguel Torga, Cinco Canciones Para Piano y Voz Emocionada, Música Toda Lampeira, and Eu.  Vangelisti’s reseach on Carrpatoso’s works will culminate in a sixty-four minute compact disc recording on the MSR Classics label with Trio Mélange members Dr. James Boldin, and Dr. Richard Seiler.  This CD is set to be released in June 2019.
