Laura Tribby hails from Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she earned trumpet and voice performance degrees at Western Michigan University and lived in her father's violin shop. As a student at WMU, she participated in over a dozen music groups, sang lead roles in operas, premiered new works, placed in NATS competitions, and spent a summer in Austria at the American Institute of Musical Studies. She maintained a successful private studio of trumpet and voice students after graduating, and was the alto section leader for the Bach Festival Chorus of Kalamazoo and a Presbyterian church choir. She moved to Colorado in September 2014 after many years of daydreaming about the Rocky Mountains and the sunny bluebird sky that makes the Denver area so special. This is her third season with the St. Martin's Chamber Choir. Thrilled with the active choral scene, Laura has also performed with the Colorado Bach Ensemble, Colorado Opera Chorus, Colorado Symphony Chorus, Denver Pro Chorale, St. Andrew's Episcopal Church Choir, Canto Deo, Wellshire Presbyterian Sanctuary Choir and Celebration Singers, Denver Jingle Singers, Vittoria Ensemble, Opera On Tap, and the newly formed Anima Chamber Ensemble. She is a Colorado Honor Band instructor, as well, and enjoys working with younger students. Along with her deep passion of music (which includes an extremely vast array of genres), Laura loves riding her bike, hiking, taking pictures, scuba-diving, yoga, and feeling grateful - especially for colors, tomatoes, and friends.
