Mara Sindoni, Voice

maraMara Sindoni’s operatic appearances have included leading roles such as Donna Anna, Fiordiligi, Aida, Mimi, Tosca, Fidelio, Rosalinda, and Marschallin.  She has soloed with orchestras and choral societies in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Verdi and Brahms Requiems, Mozart Mass in c minor, etc.

She is best known, however, for performances of contemporary chamber music, including many premieres of new works and personally-researched lecture-recitals of unknown music by women composers, Holocaust composers and zarzuelas.  Venues where she has performed in recital include Mechanics Hall, Jordan Hall, Longy, Harvard, Tufts, Brandeis, Boston, Northeastern, Suffolk, UMass, Dartmouth Universities, Worcester State, Holy Cross, Wheaton, Wellesley, Hartford Women’s  and Middlesex Community Colleges, Gardner Museum, Worcester Art Museum, Museum of Our National Heritage, Rhode Island Holocaust Memorial Museum, Goethe Institute, French Library, Boston Public Library, American Antiquarian Society, International Institute, American Institute for Jewish Music, Masaryk Club, Moniuszko Musical Society, Austro-American Association, FM, Internet Radio, Cable TV, PBS, Channel 5 Boston, etc.  She has sung in 13 languages and in all styles of music.

Mara has received nine grants and awards predominantly for her work on women composers.  Her premiere recording, “Lieder of Alma Mahler and Juli Nunlist,” is about to be rereleased on CD.  Mara is also currently seeking funding for CDs of some of her other programs premiering personally researched music by women composers.

Her educational background includes B.A. Swarthmore College, Fine Arts; M.A. and doctoral studies Boston University, Musicology; and M.M., New England Conservatory of Music, Vocal Performance.  She has taught vocal music and/or music history on every level, from pre-school through university.  Formerly on the faculties of U. Mass Dartmouth, Anna Maria College and Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Mara also taught voice at the Performing Arts School of Worcester for over 20 years, as well as in private studios in Brookline and Worcester. Mara’s students have soloed with choruses, in church and temple, in opera and music theatre, and “made it” singing everything from blue grass, to jazz, to pop.  Her high school graduates have gone on to such top notch colleges as New England and Boston Conservatories, Boston University, Emerson, Berkeley, Tisch/NYU, Oberlin, etc.
But Mara also likes teaching the unconventional student, the woman in her 40s whose children have grown so finally she has time, the 65 year-old about to retire and looking for new things to do, folks who are shy about their voices, wonder about their potential, and just want to have fun singing.
