Louise Fauteux, Soprano
Louise Fauteux enjoys a diversified career in the arts devoted to education and performance. Her versatility as a soprano has afforded her opportunities with some of today's most celebrated institutions, including a solo role in Peer Gynt with the New York Philharmonic and actor John de Lancie and a tour of Venice with DiCapo Opera and the Fairfield Chorale. Some of her favorite operatic roles performed include Pamina in The Magic Flute, Belinda from Dido and Aeneas, Gretel from Hansel and Gretel, Violetta from La Traviata, and Lucy from The Telephone. For Un Ballo in Maschera with Connecticut Concert Opera, the Hartford Courant characterized Louise Fauteux as a "pert, boyish Oscar" with "clarion tone in her two showpiece arias and a soaring top in the great Act I ensemble."
Ms. Fauteux received her master's degree in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy from Westminster Choir College and studied voice with Nan Nall, Laura Brooks Rice and Arthur Levy. Her vocal students have received various awards and scholarships and have gone on to attend further studies through Tanglewood, Hartt School of Music, Westminster Choir College, UCONN and Oberlin. Ms. Fauteux's own awards and honors include a fellowship with the Carmel Bach Festival, national semifinalist for the MacAllister Awards, and a scholarship from the Connecticut Opera Guild. In recent years she has frequently appeared on WFSB television as both a soloist and a choir director, and is a local favorite for venues such as the New Haven Chorale, Concora, the Farmington Valley Chorale, the Connecticut Master Chorale and the Connecticut Chamber Chorus. Ms. Fauteux teaches music for A.I. Prince Technical High School and is resident artist for the Cathedral of Saint Joseph in Hartford. She welcomes visitors to her website at www.louisefauteux.com.
