"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..."
"...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
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, children’s operas, or recitals 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 Award for Excellence in the Arts from the National Society of Arts and Letters, The Washington Post Music and Dance Scholarship Award, and 3rd place in the Friday Morning Music Club Sue Goetz Memorial Competition for Singers two years in a row.
While pursuing her Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Maryland, she played the role of Young Pip in Dominic Argento's Miss Havisham's Fire.
More recent opera credits include Mozart’s
Le Nozze di Figaro (Countess Almaviva),
Così fan tutte (Despina), Bastian and Bastiana (Bastiana),
and Don Giovanni (Zerlina cover/Chorus), as well as Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore (Giannetta)
and Massenet's Chérubin (L'Ensoleillad).
As a recent graduate of the Master of Music program at the Peabody Conservatory, she plans to continue to pursue musical endeavors that stretch the norms of classical music and seek to educate and serve the community.
