Amanda Fish has been pursuing her passion in vocal performance for 15 years. She first experienced success in High School as a soloist and participant in Fairfax Choral Society, as well as choir at the district, state, and all-state levels.
She continued her education at Elon University, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in Vocal Performance. She then went on to earn her Masters Degree in Vocal Performance from George Mason University.
Her most memorable roles include Dorabella in Cosi fan Tutte, Cherubino in The Marriage of Figaro, La Chesca in Gianni Schicchi, Hansel in Hansel and Gretel, and Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. She has participated in training programs through the Signature Theatre, American Singers Opera Project, Bethesda Summer Music Festival and the Crittenden Opera Project, and performed locally with the the Bel Cantanti Opera Company and Loudon Lyric Opera Company. Last year she made her international debut as Abra in Juditha Triumphans with the Mittelsächsische Philharmonie in Freiberg, Germany.
She recently completed Shenandoah University’s Contemporary Commercial Music Institute certification program. She enjoys teaching multiple genres, and uses her classical training to provide her students with confidence in their vocal ability and a strong technical music foundation. She believes that singing is first a foremost a form of self-expression, and maintains a creative and collaborative atmosphere in her lessons.
