After graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt University, Mrs. Allen attended The Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, MD. She received a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree from the conservatory in voice performance and taught voice there for one year before moving to Nashville.
Mrs. Allen has performed with almost every professional theater in Nashville and continues to enjoy performing when her teaching schedule allows. She has sung with the Nashville Symphony and has been featured in the Nashville Opera productions of “Surrender Road” by Marcus Hummon and Puccini’s “Turandot”.
