CLASSICAL SINGER MAGAZINE
ARTICLE ON ELLEN FAULL (excerpt)
The following introduction from the article entitled - "ELLEN FAULL, The legendary singer offers advice for developing singers," - appears in the February, 1994 edition of The New York Opera Newsletter, (now the Classical Singer magazine).
"Ellen Faull's contributions to music have been so vast and varied that its hard to point to any one achievement and say, "Here is what she has excelled the most." She is one of the most distinguished singing teachers of our day... a sought after pedagogue who has taught at Juilliard, The Manhattan School of Music, (as department chairperson), Sarah Lawrence, the Mannes College of Music and her own voice studio. Often cited as one of the leading Mozart singers of the century, Ms. Faull was a leading artist at the New York City Opera for more than three decades, and appeared with many of the major European and American companies in a variety of roles ranging from standard repertoire (Trovatore, Don Giovanni, Butterfly, Aida) to premieres of of contemporary works (Albert Herring, Lizzie Borden, Regina and Carrie Nation)
Ms. Faull has now moved from New York to a house by a lake in Washington state where she teaches both local students and others who fly in from engagements around the world. Ever in search of new challenges, Ms. Faull recently founded the Bel Canto Northwest summer opera program at Portland State University in Oregon to help provide learning and performing experience for local singers."
