Dr. Bethany Grace Mamola

 

Soprano Dr. Bethany Grace Mamola has charmed audiences with her powerhouse stage presence and warm velvet timbre. The Cleveland Plain Dealer praised her with “…the most beautiful singing, whose Carolina was as disarming in characterization as it was expressive in vocal shading.” The Cleveland Classical said she was “a delight to hear and see. Her casual yet precise stage demeanor and astute vocal talent made for a wonderfully clear vocal interpretation that rang throughout the hall.” Most recently Dr. Mamola was seen as Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro, Drusilla in L’incornazione di Poppea and Zerlina in Don Giovanni with the University of North Texas’ Opera Theatre. She made her debut with the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra in their Easy To Love—A Celebration of Love Songs from Broadway Gala February 2016. In 2014, Bethany debuted with Cleveland Opera Theatre as the role of Bianca in Puccini’s La Rondine. She also sang Gretel in Hansel und Gretel as a young artist with Nightingale Opera Theatre. This Spring Dr. Mamola will make her directorial debut as co-creative director of “Try Me’ at the Winspear Opera House in conjunction with ATT Performing Arts “Elevator Project”. Bethany’s other stage credits include Carolina in Il Matrimonio Segreto, La Princesse in L’enfants et les Sortileges, and she covered the title role in Cendrillon with the Cleveland Institute of Music. At the University of the Pacific, she sang the role of Polly Peachum in The Three Penny Opera and Lady Angela in Patience. Bethany was a young artist with Nightingale Opera in Ohio in 2014 and a studio artist with CCM’s Spoleto summer training program in 2010. She won the 2011 Stockton Opera Guild Competition and was the winner of the 2011 UOP Conservatory Concerto Competition. Dr. Mamola holds a DMA from the University of North Texas, a Masters of Music from the Cleveland Institute of Music and a Bachelors from the Pacific Conservatory of Music. In addition to performance, Dr. Mamola is an enthusiastic educator in Voice. She is currently on the faculty of the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley where she teaches applied voice, Lyric Diction, Vocal Methods and will direct the Spring opera production.
