Ms. Elizabeth Saunders
Private Voice Technique & Repertoire Coaching
A uniquely experienced teacher and performer, Elizabeth is enjoying a crossover into Musical Theatre after over twenty years in the classical arena. In addition to her private voice studio, she has taught voice technique and masterclasses for the New National Theater Tokyo’s Young Artist Training Program, is currently on the private voice faculty at Trinity College, Hartford CT, and serves as Artist-Instructor for the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts (teaching voice technique, Musical Theatre repertoire and private voice lessons.) As a solo performer, she has sung in the U.S., Europe and Japan. In addition to much of the standard classical Lyric Mezzo-Soprano repertoire, she has a great love of singing 20th and 21st Century less standard vocal music. As mezzo soloist for the “Ives Vocal Marathon” (a six-concert series of the complete songs of Charles Ives,) Elizabeth has performed over 50 of Ives’ solo works in concerts around the northeast since 2005. Also selected by legendary jazz/experimental composer Anthony Braxton to participate in his “Trillium” recordings, Elizabeth is particularly adept at assisting singers with finding their way technically and artistically through this type of challenging music. She received her Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Arts from the University of Southern California and her Artist Diploma in Opera Performance from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
