Ashley Fabian: a “sweet and natural” soprano

FABIAN, ASHLEY

The young American coloratura soprano Ashley Fabian has been lauded by Opera Today for her “sweet and natural” soprano.

She is a recent winner in the Grand Concours Franco-American Competition, the Orpheus Vocal Competition, the MTNA Young Artist Competition, the NATS Artist Awards Competition, and the Lois Alba Aria Competition.

Her repertoire includes principal roles in  The Impresario, Le Nozze di Figaro, The Old Maid and the Thief, Die Fledermaus, Bastien und Bastienne, The Mikado, and Don Giovanni, in which she has appeared in performances with Opera Charleston, Asheville Lyric Opera, and Central City Opera, from which she received a Young Artist Award.

A frequent concert soloist, she has appeared with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, the College-Conservatory of Music Chamber Choir, and the Monday Night Concert Series at The College of Charleston.

Ashley holds both a Bachelor’s degree and an Artist Diploma from The College of Charleston, and is now finishing her Master’s degree at The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

Ashley will be appearing in our “SINS OF OLD AGE” concert on October 2 at 2 PM, as part of the 2016-2017 series of MUSIC FOR ALL SEASONS AT HISTORIC PETERLOON. In the program she will be singing several selections from the Bel Canto repertoire, including the aria and cabaletta, O beau pays, from Meyerbeer’s Les Huguenots.

One thought on “Ashley Fabian: a “sweet and natural” soprano

  1. I was fortunate to hear her at a Lessons and Carols service in Charleston, SC in December 2015. “Sweet and natural” is a perfect description of her enormous talent!
