Season 1, Episode 6
Today’s guest: Laura Kay is an award-winning operatic soprano and voice teacher based in New York City. She’s been seen on stages across the country in operas like Mozart’s “Die Zauberflote,” Bizet’s “Carmen,” and Verdi’s “La Traviata,” but her true love is modern American opera. She collaborates regularly with some of the most exciting composers in the U.S. to develop new works for the operatic and recital stages. As a recitalist, she’s known for her series introducing new compositions to audiences in unique ways, comparing them to mainstream works of stage and screen. As a teacher, she’s worked with students ranging from the seasoned professional to the first-time singer, and she holds positions on the faculties of NYU and Temple University. Her students have performed on Broadway, been featured on TV series, and have placed in competitions around the world. She holds degrees from Penn State University, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and NYU in operatic performance and vocal pedagogy. She also is currently pursuing her PhD in voice performance and pedagogy at NYU, where she’s focusing on teaching the whole student — bringing psychology into the voice studio.
