Originally from Mount Hope, New York, Mezzo-Soprano Lindsey Grebeldinger is a versatile singer and teacher with a love of many genres ranging from Musical theatre to opera, jazz and pop. She moved to the greater Washington, D.C. area in 2014 for the position of Alto Soloist in the United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” Army Voices. She now serves in a pivotal position as one of the first female vocalists in the United States Army Chorus. As a member of the Chorus, Lindsey has sung in the most intimate dinner settings of heads of state and Army leadership to the vast viewership of millions on television. Most notable public events include: Super Bowl 50, The Today Show, and most reverently at President Herbert W. Bush’s funeral.
Capable of performing in an array of classical and contemporary styles, Lindsey was given the rare opportunity of singing back-up vocals for international pop star, Josh Groban, during his world tour in 2013.
During her studies towards a Bachelor of Music Degree at the University of Hartford’s Hartt School of Music, she began to explore her classical vocal palette through a diverse set of roles from operas such as Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin (‘Olga’), Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel (‘Witch’), to Ravel’s L’enfant et Les Sortilèges (‘Maman’ and ‘The China Cup’). She continued her studies at the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati, where she earned a Master of Music degree in 2013. Her most notable role with CCM Opera was her portrayal of ‘Mrs. Jones’ in Kurt Weill’s American opera Street Scene and was described as “especially charismatic” by The Cincinnati Enquirer. During that time, she also worked with the Cincinnati Opera and in 2013 appeared in their cabaret concert series of crossover repertoire which included scenes from a variety of vocal works, including Mozart’s opera, Idomeneo, and songs from musicals such as Hairspray, Phantom of the Opera, and Songs for a New World.
As a teacher, Lindsey is a firm believer in teaching healthful singing techniques and incorporating them into all styles of music and vocal ability. A basis of breath support, music theory and aural skills have aided students in pursuing music, theatre and public speaking at the collegiate level and beyond. Whether 8 or 80, everyone can learn the art of the voice!
