Tickets & More Info...


Praised for her “vocal control and exquisite refinement” (DC Metro Arts), soprano Teresa Ferrara is dedicated to music’s power to transcend social divides and inspire people of all ages and
backgrounds. She thrives in communicating the message of music to her audiences by expressing
words with power and precision, whether performing in mainstage productions or outreach
opportunities in her community.

Ms. Ferrara has performed as a solo vocalist at the Kennedy Center on the Millennium Stage and
in the Terrace Theater, and her chorus work has allowed her to perform often with the National
Symphony Orchestra. It has also brought her to international venues in France and Cuba. She
has earned many awards for her singing, including the George Woodhead Prize in Voice from the
Peabody Conservatory, the Award for Excellence in the Arts from the National Society of Arts and
Letters, and The Washington Post Music and Dance Scholarship Award. Most recently, Ms.
Ferrara was a semi-finalist in the FMMC’s 2019 Washington International Competition for Voice.

As a frequent artist with the IN Series opera company in Washington, D.C., Ms. Ferrara has been
a featured soloist in their productions of Viva V.E.R.D.I. - The Promised (an eight-singer
adaptation of Verdi’s Requiem) and Figaro in Four Quartets, in which she reprised the role of
Countess Almaviva from Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro. She was slated to sing the role of Gilda in
their Spring 2020 production of Verdi’s Rigoletto until the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to live
performing. Other notable opera credits include Mozart’s Così fan tutte (Despina) and Don
(Zerlina cover/Chorus), as well as Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore (Giannetta) and
Massenet's Chérubin (L'Ensoleillad). Produced by an all-Asian artistic team, 2022 brings the release of a film version of Bizet’s Pearl Fishers in which she will be singing the role of Leila.

Though the 2020-2021 season was a difficult year for performers, Ms. Ferrara continued singing
for virtual audiences and patrons of the IN Series and Baltimore Musicales. She curated a recital
in honor of women’s history month that was released as part of the Atlas Performing Arts Center’s Atlas Arts ON AIR series of virtual performances, which included interviews with SiriusXM Radio Host and CNN Legal Analyst Laura Coates. In May 2021, Ms. Ferrara once again gained the pleasure of performing for a live audience in a in a pop-up multimedia street concert, Kept Under
Glass: Unheard Women’s Voices. This stirring collaboration of three singers, choreography, and
lighting projections brought the works of rarely-heard Austrian and German women composers
to the streets of Washington, D.C.

Ms. Ferrara attended the University of Maryland School of Music (B.M.), where she was a member
of the Primannum Honor Society and Sigma Alpha Iota. She completed her graduate studies at
the Peabody Conservatory (M.M.) and is currently a soprano choral scholar at Chevy Chase United
Methodist Church in Maryland. She also joined the prestigious Washington Master Chorale under the direction of Thomas Colohan in the Fall of 2021.

Whether through opera, oratorio, or art song, Ms. Ferrara plans to continue to pursue musical endeavors that stretch the norms of classical music and seek to educate and serve the community.

"The vocal control and exquisite refinement of Ferrara’s clear lyric soprano shone in the brief 'Quid sum miser...'"

"...the 'Lacrymosa' [is] strikingly complemented by Ferrara’s ethereal soprano..."


-Leslie Weisman, DC Metro Theater Arts | Viva V.E.R.D.I - The Promised End

"...special recognition must be given to the ladies, in particular Teresa Ferrara as the Countess... In “Dove sono,” Ferrara delivers an exquisite performance, her voice as powerful and full of longing as her character’s existential entreaties, while also demonstrative of an impressive level of control. Ferrara’s aria is the musical highlight of the entire production."


-Beatrice Loayza, DC Metro Theater Arts | Figaro in Four Quartets
