Five questions with Britt Cooper, Walsh University choral professor

Britt Cooper was always involved in music as a child, taking piano lessons and singing in choirs.

While singing at Lake High School, he was given an opportunity by his director Marisa DiCesare to teach and conduct a piece on a Christmas concert. The experience hooked him — from that point on, he generally knew that he wanted to make music in collaboration with groups of singers.

Today, Cooper is the professor of choral music and coordinator of visual and performing arts at Walsh University in North Canton. He lives in Lake Township with his wife, Heather and his two children: Megan, 11, and Mark, 8.

“I am a proud product of Lake Local Schools but moved just prior to graduation (my father worked for Goodyear),” Cooper said. “I graduated from Lakeside High School in Evans, Georgia. I have a doctorate in choral conducting from the University of South Carolina, a master’s in choral conducting from the University of Alabama, and a bachelor’s in vocal performance from Augusta University in Augusta, Georgia.
