Stacy Burcham

Stacy Burcham entered USC in 1995 on a trumpet scholarship where she played in the Orchestra and Wind Ensembles, as well as the Trojan Marching Band. She became one of the founding members of the two-time ICCA champion group, the SoCal VoCals in 1996. Inspired by singing in the group, she auditioned for and was accepted into the prestigious Vocal Arts (Opera) program, where she eventually settled on a major of Music Education, with a joint vocal and trumpet emphasis. During her tenure with the VoCals, she served as musical director and producer on several CARA-nominated VoCal albums. She has received the "Best Arrangement" award in the ICCA six times, which is every year an arrangement of hers has been entered.

After graduating from USC in 2000, Stacy focused on teaching, acting, performing, and arranging music professionally. Her arrangement of the National Anthem has been featured at Clippers, Lakers, and Kings home games, and the 2008 Democratic National Debate. She regularly sings in productions at the Hollywood Bowl and is also a studio trumpet player and vocalist. Most recently she can be heard on the albums Be Brave (Molly Bryant), Have You Not Heard and Here Til the End (News at Eleven), Tug of War (Gabriel Mann), L.A. Curse (James Snyder) and on the soundtrack for the short film, "Spelling Bee." She was the solo trumpet featured on the soundtrack for the video game, "The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night", and she also recently performed on DC LIVE’s broadcast of Spookey Ruben, for which she provided keyboards, vocals, and trumpet.

Stacy is in her fourth year as Director of Instrumental Music at Lakewood High School. She has spent over 20 summers at Arrowbear Music Camp as a camper, counselor, coach, and most recently as Assistant Camp Director and Conductor. She is thrilled to help judge the ICCA competition this year! Stacy is represented by the Michael Zanuck Agency. Visit her at
