Soprano

Nicole Franklin, soprano, completed her bachelor’s degree in vocal performance at Baylor University. She then went on to receive a master’s degree, also in vocal performance, from Rice University where she studied with Dr. Joyce Farwell. Nicole has participated in various training programs, such as AIMS in Graz, Austria and the Amarillo Opera Apprentice program. She has performed Tytania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Shepherd School of Music, Rice University), Norina in Don Pasquale (Mid-Columbia Symphony in Washington State and with The Living Opera), Laetitia in The Old Maid and the Thief (New Jersey Concert Opera and in Dallas with The Helios Ensemble), Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro (The Living Opera), and Pamina in Die Zauberflöte. Nicole made her TLO debut as Nella in the 2005 touring production on Gianni Schicchi. In addition to opera, Nicole has done solo work such as Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor, in which the Dallas Morning news hailed her as “superb”, with a “bright” and “tangy” sound. She has also appeared as a soloist in Dubois’ Seven Last Words of Christ, Mozart’s Requiem, Rutter’s Requiem, and Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass. Upcoming performances include Norina in Don Pasquale with Amarillo Opera as well as appearing as a soloist with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in their Christmas Celebration. Nicole will sing Great Mass in C minor again with the Houston Masterworks next Spring. Nicole is currently teaching voice as an adjunct professor at Sam Houston State University.
