My name is Emma Roche, and I am the Artistic Director at Los Robles Children's Choir.
While I'm about to embark on my 2nd year as the Artistic Director, Los Robles Children's Choir has been a part of my life for decades as I started my involvement as a member singing in the group.
I look forward to another amazing season and helping your child learn more about music, explore their artistic side, and express themselves.
This organization has a special place in my heart, and I hope it'll find a place in yours too.
Emma Roche holds music degrees from both Westminster Choir College and the USC Thornton School of Music.
She started out singing as a young girl in Los Robles Children’s Choir and proudly continued until the age of 18 when she left the Conejo Valley for college. After completing a master’s degree at USC, Roche spent several years as an opera singer traveling throughout the United States performing with companies including LA Opera, Utah Festival Opera, Charlottesville Opera and San Diego Opera.
In 2017 she became a Roster Chorister and soloist with the Los Angeles Master Chorale (LAMC) performing in their regular season at Walt Disney Concert Hall with additional performances at the Hollywood Bowl and with the LA Philharmonic. Highlights with LAMC include singing the soprano solos in Handel’s Messiah, recording vocals for the Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker soundtrack under the baton of John Williams and winning a Best Choral Performance Grammy for the live recording of Mahler’s 8th Symphony with the LA Phil and world-renowned conductor, Gustavo Dudamel.
Equally passionate about music education, Roche has 15 years of experience teaching at both the elementary and high school levels. She is currently the children’s choir director and music teacher at St. Patrick’s Day School in Thousand Oaks. She is absolutely delighted and honored to be chosen as the next Artistic Director of Los Robles Children’s Choir where her journey originally began.
