Frohnmayer, a native of New Orleans, performed Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 with the Nashville Symphony in April, under the baton of Klauspeter Seibel. Her recent performances include Gretel in Hansel and Gretel with New Orleans Opera’s Metropelican Opera, Josephine in H.M.S. Pinafore and Casilda in The Gondoliers with Ohio Light Opera. Here at Loyola, where she will soon receive her master of music degree, Frohnmayer sang Juliette in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette. Her teacher at Loyola is Philip Frohnmayer.
Frohnmayer holds a B.A. from Beloit College in Wisconsin, where she studied with Eudora Shepherd. There, she sang Dido in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Fiona in Brigadoon. In the summer of 2005, the soprano sang Pamina and First Lady in The Magic Flute at Opera in the Ozarks. In 2004 she was a Studio Artist at Opera North in Hanover, New Hampshire.
