Music theorist and mezzo soprano Elisabeth Kotzakidou Pace specializes in Analysis for Performance and the History of Music Theory—especially as they relate to the Rhetorical Paradigm that permeated European musical thought during the late Renaissance and Baroque eras. She earned her Ph.D. from Columbia University, her MM in Vocal Performance from The Juilliard School, and trained in Cognitive Science (Linguistics and Philosophy) at Princeton, Paris-Sorbonne, and the University of California, San Diego.
Dr. Pace was a US Department of Education Fellow in Germany, where she also studied with baritone Hermann Prey. A specialist in the music of J. S. Bach, she has taught at UCSD, Columbia, and Washington University, was the founder and artistic director of the Baroque Ensemble Musical Oratory, and served as Alto soloist in various churches in Manhattan and San Diego.
