Five questions with Britt Cooper, Walsh University choral professor

Britt Cooper has always been interested in music since childhood, taking piano lessons and singing in a choir.

While singing at Lake High School, he was given the opportunity by director Marisa DiCesare to teach and conduct a Christmas concert. The experience hooked him — from that point on, he generally wanted to work with a group of singers to make music.

Cooper is currently Professor of Choral Music and Coordinator of Visual and Performing Arts at Walsh College in North Canton. He lives with his wife Heather and his two children (11-year-old Megan and his 8-year-old Mark) in his township on Lake.

“I’m a proud product of Lake Local School, but I moved out just before I graduated (my dad worked for Goodyear),” Cooper said. “I graduated from Lakeside High School in Evans, Georgia. I have a Ph.D. in Choral Conducting from the University of South Carolina, an MA in Choral Conducting from the University of Alabama, and a BA in Vocal Performance from Augusta College in Augusta, Georgia.” .
