Vocal Music

Blair’s Vocal Music program provides students with a complete musical experience through performance and academic study.

Students have the opportunity to join a choral ensemble and/or take private voice lessons. Through both courses of study, students learn sight-singing skills, improve their musicianship and develop their vocal technique. All levels of experience are welcome!

Katy Hylton, director of choral music, holds a master of music degree in choral conducting from the Eastman School of Music and a bachelor of science degree in music composition and theory from Hofstra University. While at Eastman, she served as director of the Eastman Repertory Singers and was a teaching assistant for the University of Rochester Women’s Chorus. At Hofstra, Ms. Hylton served as assistant director of the Hofstra University Chamber Singers and the Hofstra University Chorale.


For more information about performing arts at Blair, or if you are interested in bringing a group to the Blair stage, please contact Ms. Hylton at (908) 362-6121, ext. 5670.
