About Felicity

As both a performer and researcher in the science of singing and voice training, Felicity Graham brings a multi-faceted approach to her teaching. Drawing from both the arts and sciences, she combines musicality and artistry with practical techniques taken from all aspects of voice science.

Ms. Graham is an active researcher in the areas of vocal science and pedagogy. She has presented research at both the Voice Foundation's Annual Symposiums and the NATS National Conference on a range of topics, including singing voice disorders and developmental voice.

Along with her teaching and research, Felicity has an extensive background in performance. Since her New York recital debut, she has been a frequent performer of concert music, in addition to her work in opera. As a champion of American art music (and new American music, in particular), she has given the world premieres of two new pieces written for her by noted New York composer, Steve Cohen, in addition to premiering many other pieces by a variety of American composers.

Her operatic and oratorio performances have included roles from works such as Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte, Der Schauspieldirektor, Die Zauberflöte and Le nozze di Figaro; Richard Strauss’s Ariadne and Elektra, Verdi’s Requiem, Aïda and Rigoletto, Wagner’s Götterdämmerung, Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel, Obrecht’s Missa sine nomine, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, and Händel’s Serse, Alcina, Rinaldo and Ariodante.

Felicity holds a Master's degree in Music and Music Education (Vocal Pedagogy) degree from Teachers College, Columbia University, a Bachelor of Science in Vocal Performance from Tennessee State University, and has completed the Vocology Mentorship Program at Mt. Sinai's Eugen Grabscheid Voice Center. She is thrilled to serve on the Board of Directors for the New York Singing Teachers Association, as the Director of the Professional Development Program.
