Bio: Hailed by Opera News as an “excellent mezzo,” Indiana native Lori Guy has created a diverse career for herself by training and singing in operas, operettas, and musical theater productions. Lori has sung a variety of roles, including Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins, Prince Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus, Mother in Ragtime, Zita in Gianni Schicchi, Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro, and Kathy in Company. She has been seen most recently as Mercedes in Mississippi Opera’s performance of Carmen and as Maddalena in the Southern Opera and Musical Theatre Company’s Production of Rigoletto. Lori can be heard on the Albany Record’s recordings of Victor Herbert’s The Fortune Teller and Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance with the Ohio Light Opera Company. An active teacher, Lori maintains a successful private voice studio, is a voice instructor at The University of Mobile and has also recently completed a fellowship with the International Performing Arts Institute in Kiefersfelden, Germany. Thanks to technology, she also has a growing online voice studio with students throughout the US taking lessons via FaceTime.
