Nicole Collins

Soprano

Name

Born in Cheverly, MD, Nicole Collins is said to have a voice that is distinctive, and rich. She began singing at a very young age writing her own songs with many influences. But it was not until she was studying at the University of Maryland that she fell in love with singing art songs, jazz and opera arias. When she moved to Denver she had the opportunity to sing in Little Shop of Horrors.  Later, while studying at the University of Colorado Boulder she began to come into her own and started to let her large sound free. It was there that she got the opportunity to start singing in operas.  While in Boulder she sang in The Magic Flute, Sarah McKinnon and as a soloist.

When she returned to Maryland she began doing soloist work, choral work with the Washington Chorus and began singing as a recitalist. 

In the last year Miss Collins has been a soloist in the Washington, DC area.  Miss Collins has the opportunity to sing at the Kennedy Center in 2008.  Also that year, she sang in the Die Zauberflöte as the Queen of the Night, Serena in Porgy and Bess, and sang in Ragtime and as the Wardrobe in Beauty and the Beast.  This year Ms. Collins plans to sing in the International Lyric Academy in Rome in July.
