Dr. Liz Frazer is passionate about music and she brings that passion to the stage and the voice studio as a private vocal instructor. She was hailed in a review by Classical Voice of North Carolina for singing “with great power and emotional depth…easily soaring over the orchestra.” She has performed many operatic roles including, but not limited to, Lia in Debussy’s L’enfant prodigue, Abigail in Robert Ward’s The Crucible, Blanche de la Force in Poulenc’s Dialogue of the Carmelites, Elisa in Mozart’s Il re pastore, Iolanthe in Tchaikovsky’s Iolanthe.
Liz completed her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Vocal Performance at UNCG in May of 2012. Until moving to Seattle in 2017, she worked as the Director of Music Ministries at a large Raleigh, NC church, ran a private voice studio, taught voice lessons and opera workshop at a local community college, and performed chamber music around the Triangle area.
Liz recently moved to Seattle is currently working on growing her voice studio in the Fremont/Ballard area. She is the choir director for the all French singing chorale at the Alliance Française in Wallingford. Although classically trained, she is a lover of all types of music and has been teaching in multiple styles for 15 years.
While Liz enjoys performing in operas, she also loves chamber music and art song, and the collaboration involved in their performance. She has organized and performed in a series of chamber music recitals with some truly wonderful musicians. In the summer of 2012, she performed in a chamber music series in northern Italy, Holterfest. Liz's favorite performance of the trip was definitely the concert in the Tuscan village of Montecarlo di Lucca where she sang as the sun set over the olive and lemon trees. She thought it was pretty magical.
Currently she is planning recitals and masterclasses for the upcoming year and taking auditions with local opera companies and is excited to be on the roster for the Seattle chapter of Opera on Tap this year! Stay tuned for more!
