Praised for having a “flexible, very warm, and crystalline” instrument, Ann Fogler, mezzo-soprano, is a sought-after performer based out of Leipzig, Germany.. Ms. Fogler participated as a young artist in the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation program at Central City Opera for the past two summers, where she performed the role of Announcer (Gallantry) in 2017, and in 2018 was featured as a soloist in Encore: A Musical Revue. Ms. Fogler received the Central City Opera William’s Award in 2017 and the Studio Artist Award in 2018.
In the spring of 2019 Ms. Fogler made her MassOpera debut as Orlofsky (Die Fledermaus), where her Russian prince was reviewed as “delightfully eccentric.” Recent performances include Lepido (Silla) with The Cambridge Chamber Ensemble, and as Global Hope (Keepers of the Light) with the Nahant Music Festival.
This summer Ms. Fogler appeared as a soloist in Graz, Austria with the American Institute of Musical Studies’ festival orchestra, where she performed selections as Octavian from Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier and Dorabella from Mozart’s Così fan tutte. Most notably, Ms. Fogler received an Encouragement Award at finals of the 2019 Meistersinger Competition for her performance of “Una voce poco fa,” from Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia, and was also a grant recepient from the Anna Sosenko Trust Fund.
Ms. Fogler earned her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Dickinson College (‘15) and her Master of Music in Voice Performance from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee ('17) under the tutelage of Marilyn Bulli.
