More about me:
I'm a classically trained soprano, and I've performed in opera and recital throughout the eastern United States and Canada. Career highlights include performances of Arnold Schoenberg’s Erwartung and the title roles in Madama Butterfly and Tosca. I created the role of Gabrielle Martin in Paul Mathews’ opera Chatter & Static, and I've been featured in concerts of the Consortium of Vermont Composers. I've participated in summer festivals at Music Academy of the West and Tanglewood.

These days I perform recitals several times a year, but my primary focus is teaching singing. I maintain a busy private studio in New York City, and I have more than 15 years of experience teaching singing technique to professionals and amateurs who perform everything from opera to Persian classical music to death metal. I earned my BA in Music at Bennington College, MM degrees in both Voice and Clarinet Performance at Peabody Conservatory, and a DMus in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy at McGill University.

I've also been a Teaching Artist for Carnegie Hall for the past four years. I work in elementary, middle-school, and high-school classrooms teaching a variety of curricula developed by Carnegie.

Wrap Up: Singing for Life

I am composing this post in the immediate aftermath of another wonderful series of master classes with Joyce DiDonato at Carnegie Hall. I’d like to frame the wrap-up for this year’s series of posts to The Singer’s Audition Handbook by sharing some advice that Joyce offered to the singers she worked with as well as their audience.  Joyce encourages all singers to plumb the depths of your creative powers and polish your artistry to a fine sheen. And, as she has consistently emphasized throughout the classes that she has led for us, doing so is its own reward. To her, whether or not you go on to pursue an opera career is a distant secondary concern.   …See More

How to Request Opera Auditions

When I finished graduate school and it was time to begin pursuing a professional career, I was completely mystified as to how singers get hired for opera roles and concert appearances. Clearly you had to audition in order to be hired, but I didn’t know how to find out when and where auditions were held and how to request a hearing. I knew that once you joined the roster of a reputable artist manager that they would help set up auditions for you, but I also knew that under most circumstances an artist manager would not be interested in representing you until you already had some significant professional performance experience under your belt. So how do you go about getting this experience?  The answer is to educate yourself about the business and to be proactive about pursuing opportunities that are a good match for your skill set and level of experience.  Resources for learning about the business of classical singing have evolved since I emerged from graduate school.

Ms. Friedlander

Thank you so much for showing me how to join. Forgive my ignorance, but what do I do from here? Do I download me singing? or do I take a trip to meet and be part of the Voice Studio?

Thank you very much. I'm glad you like it.

Hi, Claudia! Thank you very much. As of right now, I do not compose choral music. However, this could change in the future. The piano music I compose is very much inspired by the choral setting. Many of the chord voicings I use, as well as the harmonic and melodic lines, are influenced by the way the music would be set up for a group of singers. I've spent a lot of time performing with a chorus and taking private classical voice lessons. Singing isn't my first talent, but the repertoire definitely helps my composition.

Hello. Thank you for greeting me. How do I share? I started a Youtube Channel so if you let me know I can share the link possibly.

The music program is still going good at Doherty. We actually just had our spring musical, we performed "Guys and Dolls", and i was a dancer and singer.

Opera: A Balance of Vocalism, Drama & Spectacle

The Metropolitan Opera's (New York) new Ring Cycle (Wagner) productions are all designed around an enormous, sophisticated and malleable mechanical set known as The Machine. You can see its exciting and versatile potential for yourself in the trailer Deutsche Grammophone produced for its DVDs of the four-opera set. 

 

 

It looks quite stunning in…
