Rachel Sigman

Rachel Sigman has been singing since before she could speak. Her first gig was with a Jewish Choir when she was around ten years old, and the act of singing ignited a passion within her that has lasted a life time. During her grade-school years, Rachel thought that she wanted to go into Musical Theater, and that she was going to be the next Audra Mcdonald. At camp and community theater, she pursued her passion for music and acting through musicals. However, she tended to play everyone’s mom and grandmother, because her voice sounded too mature and operatic. In her Freshman year of high school, she began voice lessons with her teacher and mentor, Paula Brown, who happened to be an Operatic Lyric Coloratura. Slowly, she began to introduce her to the fascinating, challenging and rewarding world of Classical Music and Opera and Rachel was hooked. Through high school, she studied with Paula until she was ready to continue her music in higher education. Rachel completed her Bachelor’s of Music at Mannes College in 2012.

Rachel is an Operatic Lyric Soprano. A Philadelphia native, she glad to be home again. In Philadelphia, as well as teaching she is auditioning for Opera companies around the United States and is freelancing within the tri-state area. She just completed a contract in December where she worked with Utah Opera as a Resident Artist.

She has also completed her Master’s of Music at Rice University under the instruction of acclaimed voice teacher, Dr. Stephen King. In April of 2014, she performed the role of Lady Billows in their 2014 production of Britten’s Albert Herring. Over the summer, she also performed extensively with Aspen Music Festival, singing Pamina, Despina and La Contessa in Opera Scenes Master Classes and understudying Sybil Vane in The Picture of Dorian Grey. In the Summer of 2013, she performed the role of Suor Osmina in their production of Suor Angelica, and covered the roles of Fortuna and Venere in their production of L’coronazione di Poppea. Rachel made her operatic debut with Rice University in their fall of 2012 production of Volpone as Celia. With Rice University, she was also featured in their scenes programs as Mimi from La Bohème, Ilia from Idomeneo, Rosalba from Florencia en el Amazonas, and Mrs. Fiorentino from Street Scene.

One of Rachel’s greatest pleasures is imparting the knowledge that she has gained through her ten plus years of study onto others. She personalizes her teaching style to the needs and temperaments of her students. When instructing, she explains concepts in multiple ways, ensuring that no matter what learning style you are, that you will able to progress and achieve. Her students find her to be energetic, warm and passionate and one of her biggest goals is to make her students feel more empowered when they leave than when they arrived. Music is a transformative art form and she hopes to enrich her student’s lives and help them grow through its power.
