Mary Dupaix received her baccalaureate degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Utah where she studied with Dr. Carol Ann Allred. Prior to attending the University of Utah she studied voice with David Schmidt. Music was a tradition in her family and each of her siblings grew up playing an instrument. Her chosen instrument was the clarinet. She started playing clarinet in 3rd grade and continued with it through high school. However, singing was the thing she most enjoyed. Her senior year in High School found her involved in band as well as being a member of both the A’Cappella Choir and Madrigals. After high school she sang with the Mormon Youth Symphony and Chorus and the Utah Oratorio Society. Besides singing, she enjoys theater and has played small roles in Community Theater as well as in the Utah Lyric Opera’s productions of Don Giovanni and Suor Angelica.
