Meet Kelsey Fahy, a mezzo-soprano and engineer based in San Diego County.
Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, she decided she wasn’t cold enough and so spent her college years in Minnesota, where she sang in the St. Olaf Choir and performed in Suor Angelica, Gianni Schicchi, and The Coronation of Poppea.
Since relocating to California, Kelsey has performed in chorus roles with Pacific Lyric Association and Lyric Opera of Orange County, has worked as a supernumerary in Otello with Pacific Symphony, and sings regularly with the Southern California Damekor.
Her most recent performance was as Mercedes in PLA's production of Carmen. In addition to opera chorus work, Kelsey has understudied the roles of Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus and Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors.
Fun fact: listening to the Fellowship of the Ring score was what prompted her decision to pursue singing.
La Traviata, Oct 19, 20 and 21 2023 at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido, CA
