Laura Harrison

Dr. Laura Harrison is a jazz educator, composer, arranger and vocalist who has been pursuing a dual career in jazz and classical music since 1996. She has made quite a reputation for herself as a classical mezzo-soprano performing in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas of Southern California for 20 years (1998-2018). In August of 2010, she debuted her first jazz CD that has been played in forty-three states and thirteen countries, and climbed to #18 on the CMJ Jazz National Chart.

After receiving degrees at Capilano University and the University of British Columbia, Harrison was a high school teacher in Canada until she was recruited to pursue her graduate studies in Los Angeles, California. She received her Master of Music and Doctorate of Musical Arts degrees in Jazz Studies at the University of Southern California under the mentorship of Dr. Thom Mason and Carmen Bradford. As a former student of Capilano University, Harrison had the distinct pleasure to sing in the flagship ensemble, NiteCap, and is thrilled to be back teaching at her alma mater.
