Caroline Bergan, soprano, is pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at The Ohio State University. Her focus is Voice and Singing Health Specialization. She earned her master's degree and Artist Diploma at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Born in Florida of a French mother and Norwegian father, she has had the great fortune of being raised with three native languages. Ms. Bergan made her debut with the Cleveland Orchestra in their centennial season-opening production of The Cunning Little Vixen. She performed Poulenc's Gloria with the Firelands Symphony Orchestra and Berlioz selections from Béatrice et Bénédict with the Duke Orchestra. Most recently Ms. Bergan appeared in the Art Song Festival (Cleveland) and on Ohio State's opera theatre stage as the Countess in Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro. Ms. Bergan has a love of science, performing, teaching and research; through Ohio State she has been able to pursue these interests. Ms. Bergan is particularly interested in Edvard Grieg's contribution to art song and is focusing her research on making his vocal output more accessible to non-native speakers. Ms. Bergan's current teaching assignments include private voice for minor and non-major students as well as group instructional voice class.
