Highlights from Quarantine Sing! 2020-2021
Quarantine Sing! was born in June of 2020. We didn’t know then that the program would be launching its fifth iteration in 2021. What we knew is that we had created something special. This video, created by the inaugural cohort sums up the experience.
All participants of Quarantine Sing! take weekly voice lessons with soprano Elisabeth Stevens.
Bass Steven Pence sings full-time with the LA Opera Chorus and also maintains a professional solo career.
Quarantine Sing! Winter Edition included our first production with an instrumental ensemble. Our abridged version of Handel’s Messiah included a chamber ensemble led by José Meléndez and a virtual choir made up of Studio LIS and our friends singing the Hallelujah chorus. Here tenor Diego Valdez sings "Comfort Ye...Every Valley."
In the most recent edition of Quarantine Sing! participants focused on art song. For their final project, singers were broken into teams and challenged to create a music video using repertoire from the concert. This film noir-inspired project features soprano, Kiena Williams (singing), and Melody L. Fletcher (drinking!), with the fabulous José Meléndez at the piano.

Lis is so in tune with what's going on with my body, even thru Zoom. It's amazing! I feel safe, I feel understood and I'm getting the tools I need to progress. Thank you!
What Our Students Say
Steve Pence, Bass
LIS is excellent. She is a solid vocal technician with the ears and expertise necessary to help singers find their true voice and takes an active interest in the student’s individual needs with regard to their artistic and career goals. Highly recommended.
Beth Mirzai, Soprano
Another wonderful lesson. Lis is wonderful because she treats the singer as a whole person and is so knowledgeable!
