Lyric coloratura soprano Patrice Burgstahler was brought to the attention of the music world with a critically acclaimed portrayal of Cunegonde in Leonard Bernstein's Candide at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. She has gone on to perform leading roles in operas of Donizetti, Mozart and Verdi throughout the United States and Europe.
The versatile singer performed the role of Carlotta in Andrew Lloyd Webber's German production of Phantom of the Opera for ten years, singing multiple performances in German at Hamburg's Neue Flora Theatre 3000 seat auditorium; hired from 800 in New York City auditions.
For ten years she was based in Hamburg, Germany, and upon her return to the United States joined the music department at Northeastern State University for four years to teach applied voice, vocal diction and other related voice classes, before returning to Colorado.
Ms. Burgstahler's credentials include a Bachelor's Degree of Music in Vocal Performance from University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master's Degree of Music in Vocal Performance at Boston Conservatory of Music under renowned opera conductor and diction expert, John Moriarty. She was one of five vocalists accepted each year into a Doctoral Cohort Program at Columbia University, and recently spent time during the summer in NYC working on her doctorate.
She was the Rocky Mountain Regional winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, competing in the New York City semi-finals, judged by a panel which included Kurt Adler, Dame Joan Sutherland and John Reardon. A Regional San Francisco Opera Auditions winner, Miss Burgstahler won both district and regional CO/WY NATS - National Association of Teachers of Singing, 1st place winner undergraduate women's division.
