Logan Chaput, baritone, is a native of the Northeast Kingdom, hailing from Newport Center, Vermont. He is a recent graduate of Ithaca College’s School of Music where he studied voice under the tutelage of Dr. Jennifer Kay and Dr. Brad Hougham. During his time in New York, he performed with the Ithaca College Opera Company, the Ithaca College Choir, the Ithaca College Madrigal Singers, the Ithaca College Chorus, and the Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers, making appearances at a variety of venues across the east coast. Most recently, he performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City alongside the Grammy award-winning Fisk Jubilee Singers.
As an educator, Logan spent time working at the Idyllwild Arts Academy summer program in southern California where he helped prepare young musicians for performances at the Disney Concert Hall. Additionally, he served as a faculty instructor at Exploration Summer Programs, in the Bronx, NYC, and will serve as the organization’s programming manager starting in June of this upcoming summer. Through Ithaca College, he has also taught music to students at the schools of Belle Sherman Elementary, South Hill Elementary, and Vestal High.
Chaput attributes much of his success to the strong musical foundation he was able to build during his time growing up in Vermont. His earliest understanding of and exposure to music were provided by Dr. Sara Doncaster of Coventry, Vermont who was his elementary school music teacher and private piano teacher. He later went on to study voice with Lynn Leimer of Newport, Vermont, and Victoria Cole of Franconia, New Hampshire. At North Country High School, he was a member of both vocal and instrumental ensembles under the direction of Danielle Carrier and Bill Prue, participated in musicals, state and regional choral festivals, and was the recipient of the Quincy Jones Overall Musician award. Outside of the classroom, he sang with Northsong, performed at the MAC Center for the Arts and Fourth Friday’s Music Jams, and took part in numerous QNEK productions.
As an emerging scholar, Chaput graduated with summa cum laude honors and accumulated over twenty scholarships, awards, and grants during his time in college, including the Presser Foundation’s National Undergraduate Musician Award. His research has centered around the geographic luck of classical music’s most notable musicians and bringing choral classroom pedagogy into the United States’ common core curriculum. This fall, he will be attending Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a master’s degree in leadership and organizational performance.
