After graduating from Centenary, Robinson attended graduate school at Indiana University before becoming an Adler Fellow with the San Francisco Opera. Her career was firmly launched when she won the Grand Prize of the Metropolitan Opera Auditions in 2002. That same year she also won the MacAllister Competition in Opera. Under management with Columbia Artists, Robinson has sung opera, oratorio, and symphonic solo concerts all over the world.

This fall, she will sing Verdi's "Requiem" with the Indianapolis Symphony and the Seattle Symphony, Dvorak's "Te Deum" with the Dallas Symphony, and Strauss' "Vier Letzte Lieder" with the Shreveport Symphony.

Robinson will bring her experience as a world-class stage performer to Centenary, where she looks forward to giving back to the college community that started her on her successful musical path.
