Know your Voice.

Trust your voice. 

In addition to teaching voice, Juliana Snapper is an internationally recognized contemporary opera singer, recitalist, live performance artist, experimental theater director and voice scholar. Her career was propelled early on by a Grammy for her contribution to the Best Ensemble in an Opera Recording, and by winning the Blanche Thebom/Metropolitan Opera award for Outstanding Young Singer of the Year. She currently holds degrees in vocal performance from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where she studied with renowned pedagogue Richard Miller, and an MA in critical musicology from the University of California, San Diego, where she continued on to complete a Ph.D dissertation supported in part by grants awarded by the UCSD Center for the Humanities and the American Association of University Women. Snapper also received the distinguished teaching award for her work as lecturer for courses on both western classical and popular music. 

Juliana's work has been the topic of research in academic journals, such as: The Drama Review, and in books from the Oxford, Princeton, and Duke University Presses. In 2014, the Huffington Post named Snapper as being one of “Fourteen Artists Who Are Transforming the Future of Opera.” Snapper has received generous funding from the Arts Council of Great Britain, the Durfee Foundation, the Knight Foundation, and the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, among others, for the production of her original large-scale works. These have included "Judas Cradle" (2005-2008), known for its inverted arias, which toured England, Ireland, Scotland, Canada, and culminated with productions for Performa ‘05, New York, and the REDCAT, Los Angeles, as well as "You Who Will Emerge From the Flood" (2008-2011), recognized as the first underwater opera, which toured Manchester, Porto, Warsaw, Geneva, Montreal. Ljubljana, and various US cities, where she transformed unlikely sites - a Victorian bathhouse, a Soviet Olympic Training pool, the Standard’s rooftop pool Los Angeles, and a dunk tank at the PS1/MoMA in New York - into functioning opera houses. She has been a featured soloist at the Guggenheim, the Pulitzer Foundation, the Getty, the Walker Art Center, the New York Museum of Modern Art and the Ojai Festival Main Stage. Snapper will be a featured artist in the inaugural series of performances at the Broad Museum scheduled for Spring, 2016 in Los Angeles.
