Elizabeth Perryman, soprano, received her Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Eastern Illinois University, Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, and Professional Studies Diploma at Mannes School of Music.  She completed three years study towards a doctorate of musical arts at Louisiana State University.  Ms. Perryman has appeared with the Bronx Opera, Chelsea Opera, Pensacola Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, Opera Brooklyn, Opera 691, Bravo Alliance, Plainfield Symphony, New York Lyric Opera Theater, and the Altamura Summer Festival.  Some of the roles that she has sung include Donna Anna, The Merry Widow, Fiordiligi, Countess, Donna Elvira, Micaela, Elisabetta, First Lady, Suor Angelica, Mother in Hansel & Gretel, and Dido.  Ms. Perryman has been a three time regional finalist with the Metropolitan Opera Auditions and has won the audience choice award at the Altamura/Caruso International Competition.  She was a finalist in the American Institute of Musical Studies Meistersinger competition, a semi-finalist in the Chicago Bel Canto Competition, and won first place in the Sigma Alpha Iota Graduate Performance Awards.   From a review of the Altamura/Caruso competition “Perryman stunned with her visceral performance as Santuzza in Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana.  In Santuzza’s scene with Turridu, the man who abandons her, pregnant, Perryman spent as she sustained the same vocal focus in a gutty dramatic spill; nothing rough, no bathos, but utterly compelling.  Her woman grasped the house.” From her performance of Donna Elvira, a review read “Perryman’s first aria at the opening concert of the competition carried with it the classic dramatic splendor of that great Teutonic soprano Eleanor Steber-a solid core of perfectly focused tone. Ms. Perryman has sung the soprano solos in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and the Newark Basilica Cathedral Choir.   Ms. Perryman teaches elementary music in North Brunswick, New Jersey.
