About Alison

I’m a working opera singer and I fulfill many opera and concert contracts.  

I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the very best teachers, conductors and coaches in the world. My current teacher is the fabulous Andrea DelGiudice.  My former teachers include Ruth Falcon, Rita Shane, Dodi Protero, Barbara Conrad, Bill Schumann, Diana Soviero, and Bill Neill.  Conductors I worked with are Donald Runnicles, John Keenan, Daniel Raiskin, Karen Kamensek, and Joseph Colaneri.  Coaches I have worked with are (New York): Mitchell Cirker, William Hobbs, Roger Malouf, (Berlin): John Dawson, Peter Berne, Douglas Brown, Graham Cox.

My Elocution work grew out of my own background as a Shakespearean actress, which is what I was pursuing before I realized I could not ignore my voice.  My degree is in Theater & Film, and I love working with public speaking students.



Ms. Bolshoi is member of:

The American Guild of Musical Artists (“AGMA”)

The National Association of Teachers of Singing, USA (“NATS”)

The Association of Teachers of Singing, United Kingdom (“AOTOS”) 

The New York Singing Teachers Association (“NYSTA”)

I worked as a voice teacher at the MAYO Performing Arts Center in Morristown, NJ, as well as at ATC Acting School in Clifton, NJ.  I am invited to give workshops on vocal technique at Hillside School in Montclair, and give a yearly workshop to the Celebration Singers Choir in Cranford, NJ.
