Phoebe Gildea’s vibrant voice and honest, engaging acting have earned her roles in opera and theater alike, including Emma (Jekyll & Hyde), Lady Macbeth (Macbeth), Foreign Princess (Rusalka), Zweite Dame (Die Zauberflöte), and Amalia (She Loves Me); as well as the opportunity to create the role of Celeste Owen in the new opera FREE MEN by Ashley Hastings. Also an active concert performer, she recently sang Alto solos in Bach's Magnificat and Handel's Messiah with Bravo! Northwest Chorale and Orchestra. Phoebe is based in Portland, Oregon, where she maintains a private studio teaching voice, piano, and Body Mapping for performers.
