Soprano Felicity Salmon has been praised for her “brightly focused” sound, and the “deep sensitivity” she brings to her performances (Boston Musical Intelligencer). Ms. Salmon has performed with Cantata Singers since 2013 and has appeared as a soloist with the ensemble in both the Concert and Chamber Series. In addition to performing, Ms. Salmon taught privately from 2004-2012, and until this season was a teaching artist for the Classroom Cantatas educational outreach program, which gives Boston Public School children the experience of composing and performing their own songs.
Originally from British Columbia, Canada, Ms. Salmon completed her studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music and moved to Hawaii for undergraduate work in music and theater. While there she toured as a soloist and actress with multiple performing groups traveling extensively through China, Taiwan, Australia, Samoa, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
Ms. Salmon studied under William Cotten at the Boston Conservatory, completing a Master of Music in Voice Performance. Her graduate studies took her to Urbania, Italy, and the Dante Alighieri Scuola di Lingua for language study for an intensive music and language program through the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied voice with Dr. Joyce Farwell.
Ms. Salmon has served as president of the Cantata Singers chorus, volunteers in the Newton Public Schools Creative Arts and Sciences Committee, and is currently the Music Program Coordinator for Wellesley College. She resides in Newtonville with her filmmaker partner and their three children.
