Victoria Lavan enjoys a varied and accomplished career as a singer, actress, teacher and vocologist. Known for her skills and success in many styles and genres of music, she has been praised by the Los AngelesTimes as “…a soprano with first-rate, high soaring vocal skills…and a warm, lyrical, uncluttered way with a song…” (Don Heckman). Favorite collaborations and roles include: the Sundance Institute with San Francisco Opera Adler Fellowship Program; Salt Lake Opera Theatre, Rigoletto (Gilda); Opera Unplugged, La Boheme (Musetta); Albuquerque Chamber Orchestra, The Telephone (Lucy); New West Symphony, Ventura Music Festival - Bach B Minor Mass, soprano soloist, Grammy Award winning conductor, Vance George; Jesus Christ Superstar with Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson, Rubicon Theatre Co.; Glitter and Be Gay:A Tribute to Barbara Cook, El Portal Theatre and regional tour, and several new musical theatre works, most recently, “The Tango Singer” at Theatre West and “Swan Lake the Musical” – a Sold Out private concert in Los Angeles.
Current teaching appointments include: Vocal Health Advisor, Voice Instructor and New Hire Coordinator at AMDA College and Conservatory in Los Angeles and Voice instructor with the UCLA Ray Bolger Musical Theatre Program. Victoria is actively engaged in the study and practice of vocology, a functional, fact-based approach to training the voice. This approach, used with traditional pedagogical methods, creates an instrument with a high level of balanced, sustainable technique, versatility and the capacity for full expressivity in any style of music.
Victoria is a charter member of the Pan American Vocology Association, a member of the Voice Foundation and the National Association of Teachers of Singing where she has served as president of NATS-LA and NATS regional governor for Southern California. She received the NATS Teacher Enrichment Grant Award in 2013. In September 2017 Victoria was awarded a full scholarship to a 200-hour training program for certification as a yoga instructor with CorePower Yoga.
Victoria’s greatest accomplishments as a teacher are reflected through the success of her students, many of whom are successfully creating their own artistic work, performing on stages, cruises, tours and in recording studios in Los Angeles, New York, across the United States and throughout the world.
