AMANDA MCCARTHY, mezzo-soprano and native New Orleanian, completed her undergraduate degree from Loyola University in Vocal Performance and her Master’s in voice from Texas State University. She returned home to New Orleans to serve as a member of the city’s rich and vibrant musical community. She hopes to do her part in the return of performance art and culture in New Orleans during this pandemic.
She provided this update recently to Chorus Master, Carol Rausch:
“Man was it great to see this letter go out, it gave me hope for an interesting but nevertheless musical future! As you know, this is my favorite job ever so I’m always available for the season. And now that I’m taking voice lessons once more, I am feeling a lot fresher too! I hope you are doing well, remaining healthy and sane, and I CANNOT wait to see everyone when we are finally allowed to sit in the same room together again.”Amanda McCarthy
