A native of the Pacific Northwest, dramatic soprano Erin G. McCarthy is a dynamic performer who brings a steely, soaring voice and an "elegant, sparkling" (Willamette Week 2003) presence to the concert, opera, and recital stage.
In her Newberg, Oregon voice studio Erin is a kind, effective teacher who guides her students towards their individual goals with a skillful, supportive approach to singing.
The only thing better than singing is more singing.
– Ella Fitzgerald
Erin is a busy performer whose 2013/2014 engagements include recitals throughout the Northwest, a chamber music concert tour, and speaking engagements at the Walters Cultural Arts Center. She is available for performance and is currently accepting new voice students.
Erin is also a passionate equestrian who is a member of the Oregon Dressage Society. She has developed a curriculum for teaching fellow riders basic music theory to improve their understanding of rhythm - in and out of the saddle - and operates Ridden Rhythms at Fermata Farm, the private dressage facility where she makes her home.
