Professor Stevenson, a major artistic force in Los Angeles, has dedicated her life to nurturing urban youth. A gifted composer, concert pianist, educator, evangelist, music consultant, and vocal coach, she has trained and inspired thousands of singers and musicians over the years.
Iris Stevenson attended Villa Maria Institute of Music, one of America's finest Fine Arts schools in Buffalo, New York. She continued on to Oberlin Conservatory of Music, as student and teacher. She taught at Canisius College in New York, while receiving her Master's of Fine Arts in Pedagogy from State University of New York at Buffalo. Iris was recruited by the Los Angeles Unified School District to teach at Crenshaw High School in 1985. The school has since honored her with the dedication of the Iris Stevenson Music Wing. Simultaneously in 2001, President Jacques Chirac and the Ministry of Education of France commemorated the global work of Professor Stevenson by re-naming their Fine Arts building in Tarare, France.
