Hailed as a “standout voice” by the Boston Musical Intelligencer, soprano Stephanie Scogna is an emerging soloist, choral singer, administrator, and teacher in the Boston area. She has appeared as Sister Constance in Dialogues of the Carmelites and Zweite Dame in The Magic Flute with New England Conservatory’s Opera Theatre, and has sung the role of Gretel in Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel and the title role of Massenet’s Cendrillon. She received her Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance at New England Conservatory in 2015 with additional studies in Vocal Pedagogy, and completed her Bachelor of Music degree with a minor in Religious Studies from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in 2013.
Stephanie’s passion lies in art song and sacred music. She has enjoyed solo performances with chorus and chamber orchestra in Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis (2009), Fauré’s Requiem (2010), Stravinsky’s Mass (2014), and Mozart’s Krönungsmesse (2016). Stephanie is a three-year member of the esteemed Choir of the Church of the Advent in Beacon Hill, and also sings frequently throughout Boston as both a cantor and choral section leader. An avid proponent and specialist of art song, Stephanie joined collaborative pianist Seoyon MacDonald in 2015 to found the Boston Art Song Society, providing a central avenue for a salon-style art song concert series in Boston each year. She performed on the Society’s American, French, and German song concerts in the 2015-16 season, and enjoys working as both singer and administrator for this new organization!
With a strong belief in sound pedagogy and training for singers in all genres, Stephanie prides herself in working one-on-one to help young singers find their true voices! She is currently a voice and piano instructor through Merry Melody Music Academy (Westwood, MA) and has recently opened her private voice studio in Watertown, MA. She has prepared students for significant musical theater roles and summer music camps. She looks forward to continuing her performing and teaching career in the greater Boston area.
