“Vocalism of impeccable poise and time-stopping expressivity” Joseph Newsome, Voix des Arts, Gilda
Amy is a Tennessee native who currently resides in Denver, CO, with her husband, toddler, and furry child. Quickly gaining a reputation for her crystalline coloratura, relentless high notes, and witty theatrics, Amy compels audiences with her fearless artistry and attention to detail. Performing with such orchestras as the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, Alabama Symphony Orchestra, Brevard Symphony Orchestra, Colorado Chamber Orchestra, and Orchestra Kentucky, among others, Amy is making her mark as a respected concert soloist as much as an operatic performer. As a guest artist with such Colorado companies as Opera Theatre of the Rockies, Opera Colorado, Loveland Opera Theatre, Boulder Opera, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, Colorado Chamber Orchestra, The Larimer Chorale, The Denver Art Song Project, and Parish House Baroque, Amy is quickly becoming a go-to soprano on the high desert circuit.
Possessing a special talent for all things florid, roles include Cunegonde in Candide, Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro, Adina in L’Elisir d’Amore, Gilda in Rigoletto, Linda in Linda di Chamounix, Lakmé in Lakmé , Thérèse in Les Mamelles de Tiresias, Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance, Dorinda in Orlando, Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Tuptim in The King and I, Cosette in Les Miserables, and Christine in The Phantom of the Opera.
Amy received her MM in Voice Performance from Florida State University where she studied with tenor Stanford Olsen, after receiving her BM in Voice Performance at Lee University in her home state of Tennessee.
