Ellen Allen, Soprano

Art song, oratorio, and recital performances

Classically speaking, I'm a lyric coloratura, but after years of teaching and practicing musical theater, I also have a strong and colorful low range.  My entire usable range extends down to A3 and up to F6.

As an instrumentalist-turned-singer, I place high value on excellent musicianship.  I'm a stellar sight-reader and learn the nuts and bolts of a piece really quickly.  That means we can get to the good stuff - making music - a lot sooner.

I'm equally at home as a soloist or ensemble singer, and can easily adapt my tone for optimal balance and blend - including limiting or eliminating vibrato.

A colleague once said, "Ellen has legato for days.  And phrasing."

I've also been complimented on my very even registration.
