Soprano Felicity Salmon has been praised for her “brightly focused” sound and the “deep sensitivity” she brings to her performances (Boston Musical Intelligencer). She has performed with Cantata Singers since 2013, and she has appeared as a soloist with the ensemble in both the Concert and Chamber Series. Ms. Salmon has taught privately since 2004, and she is 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 soloist and actress with ensembles that traveled extensively through China, Taiwan, Australia, Samoa, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
Ms. Salmon studied voice with William Cotten at Boston Conservatory, where she earned a Master of Music in Voice Performance. Her graduate studies took her to Urbania, Italy, and, through the Manhattan School of Music, to the Dante Alighieri Scuola di Lingua, where she studied voice with Dr. Joyce Farwell.
Ms. Salmon is the immediate past-president of the Cantata Singers chorus, volunteers in the Newton Public Schools Creative Arts and Sciences Committee, and lives in Newtonville with her filmmaker partner and their three children.
