Assistant Director of Bands
Kara Robbins Stoughton graduated from Boston College in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in English and a love for music. A double bass player, Kara has performed with the New Philharmonia Orchestra in Newton since her student days. She has spent most of her professional career in the non-profit arts community, working with the New Philharmonia Orchestra, Newton Cultural Alliance, Tanglewood Music Center, and The Boston Conservatory.
Kara is thrilled to be back “home” again at BC. Armed with a master's degree in teaching, she has developed interactive and engaging classical music performances for family audiences and is focused on building community through music and sharing this spirit with BC’s dedicated and talented student musicians. Originally from Florida, Kara has finally accepted New England weather and has settled in Massachusetts with her husband Mike.
