Voice and Piano
Nicole Stover is a vibrant soprano with a fierce love for classical music and a passion for collaborative storytelling . Her focus centers around interactive arts such as opera, chamber music, new music and choral singing.
A genre bursting at the seams with stories and escapism, performing opera is where Nicole feels most at home. Often portraying women with a dramatic flair, she has performed as Nella in Varna International’s production of Gianni Schicchi and as Noémie in UNT’s production of Le Testament de Tante Caroline. Most recently, Nicole focused on the role of Miss Jessel from Britten’s The Turn of the Screw with Peabody Opera and participated in the chorus of Turandot with Maryland Lyric Opera Chorus.
Nicole has been teaching voice and piano lessons for about 4 years. Nicole’s students can expect to begin with classically-based training as a home base, allowing her to transition students into other genres and understand the adaptability of their musical talents. Always looking for the colors in each story, Nicole loves working with students to pull out the character in every piece along with the “why” behind it, whether it be sung or played. Nicole focuses largely on versatility training, body awareness and building the breath in order to draw out the fully engaged performer.
Currently, Nicole is actively performing around the DMV area. She completed her Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance at Peabody Conservatory in the Spring of 2022 under the direction of Ah Young Hong and previously graduated with her BM in Vocal Performance in 2019 under the direction of Dr. Carol Wilson. Along with teaching at Harmonic Music Studios, Nicole continues to pursue opera, early music, choral singing and new works with composers around Baltimore.
