Stephanie Ann Ball, lyric coloratura soprano is swiftly taking her place in the world of classical music with her warm, strong, lyric voice. A favorite of Midwestern and Southwestern audiences, she has performed in many operas and oratorios including a soloist in Mozart’s  Requiem  with the Bach Society of St. Louis, and the charming role of Adina in Mid-Ohio Opera’s production of  L’elisir D’amore . Ms. Ball is equally comfortable on the recital stage and frequently performs African American spirituals and art songs with passion and sensitivity, and has appeared in concert alongside world renowned composers Mark Hayes and Craig Bohmler. Matt Daniels of St. Louis’ Tavern of Fine Arts says this of her singing: “She… is able to express its meaning to an audience through both the agility of her voice and dramatic movement…” Offstage, Ms. Ball continually works hard to introduce opera to her community through educational outreach. Now residing in Philadelphia, PA, Ms. Ball is enjoying becoming a part of that musical community. To learn more about her, please visit her website,  www.stephanieannball.com .
