Claire Stadtmueller

Soprano Claire Stadtmueller has made a name for herself in the operatic and oratorio circuits worldwide and performs frequently as a recitalist throughout the United States.

Making her Carnegie Hall debut in Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, Claire continued to perform oratorio in that prestigious venue in Handel’s Israel in Egypt, Mendelssohn’s Second Symphony, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and St. Matthew Passion, and in Orff’s Carmina Burana. She has appeared in New York City at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Trinity Church, and in concert with the Richard Tucker Foundation at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall. Claire’s recent credits include Tosca with the New York Grand Opera under the baton of Vincent La Selva, which led to the role of Amelia in Verdi’s Un Ballo di Maschera. She premiered the leading role of Persephone in Geoffery Gibb’s opera, Potnia, and has performed in other operatic roles including Lucia in Lucia Di Lammermoor, Pamina in Die Zauberflote, Fiordiligi in Cosi fan Tutte, Miss Silverpeal in The Impresario, Rosario in Goyescas, the Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors, and the Dew Fairy in Hansel and Gretel. Her radio performances include NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion” and WGBH Boston’s “Classics in the Morning.” Her solo CD Sweet Peace, a collection of international songs that celebrate peace or express the tragedy of war, has been heard on WGBH Boston, WBAI New York and WHJJ Providence.

Claire holds a Master of Music degree from the University of Rhode Island and a Bachelor of Music degree from the New England Conservatory. She has served on the Voice faculties of several universities in New Jersey, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and has taught private lessons at the Music School of the Rhode Island Philharmonic, St. George’s School in Newport RI and in her own studio.

Teaching in a variety of genres in addition to opera and oratorio, Claire has helped singers of jazz, musical theater and rock improve their range, stamina and quality. Her students have won leading roles in school and community theater productions, high ranking in All-State and Regional Choruses, and acceptance to college musical theater and opera departments. We couldn’t be more delighted that Claire has agreed to teach our voice students at The Ridgewood Conservatory!
