Soprano Amy Burton is pleased to announce that she will join the Vocal Arts faculty at the Juilliard School in the Fall of 2019. Also a Professor of Voice at Mannes College of Music (The New School College for Performing Arts) since 2002, Ms. Burton is a versatile performer and educator. In addition to Juilliard and Mannes, she is on the faculties of the CUNY Graduate Center’s DMA Program and SongFest at Colburn, a prestigious summer festival that focuses on vocal training and Art Song. She has previously taught French Vocal Literature at the Manhattan School of Music, and also maintains a private studio in New York City.
Ms. Burton’s students have been featured performers at major festivals, opera houses, and with orchestras all over the world, including the Metropolitan Opera, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Dutch National Opera, the Salzburg Festival, Minnesota Opera, the Ravinia Festival, Marlboro Music Festival, and the Tanglewood Music Center, and NPR’s radio program, From the Top. They have won awards from the Metropolitan Opera Guild, the Gerda Lissner Foundation, the Licia Albanese-Puccini Foundation, Opera Index, the Opera Foundation, the Francisco Viñas International Singing Contest, the Ziering-Conlon Prize, and the Alexander Girardi International Singing Competition, among many others.
Ms. Burton’s own versatility as a performer is reflected in the breadth of interests of her students; many are dedicated interpreters of contemporary music as well as baroque music, opera, vocal chamber music, jazz, and cabaret.
