Lee Anne Frahn

Assistant Director of Admissions

I am excited to make the move from Bellingham, WA, to the vibrant city of San Francisco and join the SFCM community. As a vocalist (MMus Vocal Performance, University of Nebraska-Lincoln) and a background in music higher education, I am eager to continue my journey of supporting students and their passion for music. As a first-generation student, I understand firsthand how intimidating the application process can be. My dedication lies in helping students smoothly transition into college life and empowering them to make their mark on the world. Together with our exceptional faculty and staff, I look forward to creating an inviting and inclusive home for SFCM students, nurturing their growth and artistic aspirations.

Originally from Los Angeles, I came to San Francisco to pursue a master's degree in vocal performance at SFCM. After finishing my degree (MM '22), I was lucky enough to join the incredible admissions team. I now enjoy supporting and encouraging applicants as they consider becoming members of our amazing and passionate community. I look forward to helping out incoming students as they make their way to the beautiful city of San Francisco.
