Ms. Perryman has enjoyed singing the soprano solos in Beethoven’s Ninth
Symphony with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and the Cathedral Basilica of Newark. An excerpt from the review of the Altamura/Caruso competition had this to say about Ms. Perryman: “Perryman’s first aria at the opening concert of the competition, Donna Elvira’s ‘Ah, che dice mai?’ from Mozart’s Don Giovanni, carried with the classic dramatic splendor of that great Teutonic soprano Eleanor Steiber – a solid core of perfectly focused tone.” Ms. Perryman teaches elementary music in North Brunswick, NJ.
