Voice Teachers in Lebanon
Name: Maria Christina Fakhoury
Spinto soprano Maria Christina Fakhoury's luminous voice has been described as ''the colors of God'' (Federation Francaise de l'Enseignement Musical). Yet beyond the glory of her singing, what has perhaps distinguished her most is her almost magical ability to create an unwavering emotional bond between herself, her music and her audience. As a child, this native of Ashrafieh, Beirut, the older of two children, sang in church and school, and envisioned a future as a music teacher. Fortunately for audiences around the world, she found other ways to share her love of music-and through her natural gifts, innate intelligence, and hard work, her soaring voice has carried her to the heights of the classical music world.
The range of Miss Fakhoury's repertoire spans three centuries from the Baroque era to contemporary works. She has enjoyed some of her greatest successes in repertoire ranging from Johann Strauss II (Rosalinde) to Giacomo Puccini (Mimi, Madama Butterfly, Lauretta) to Georges Bizet (Carmen).
She has similarly distinguished herself as one of our generation's finest interpreters of Mozart (Despina, Pamina), as well as the bel canto operas of Rossini (Il Barbiere di Siviglia) and Donizetti (L'Elisir d'Amore, Don Pasquale, La Fille du Regiment).
In recital, Maria Christina Fakhoury has mesmerized audiences with her unique artistry and vocal beauty; her luscious, well-supported vocal gifts bloomed magnificently. Displaying great emotional maturity and a seemingly unlimited vocal range, she melded effortlessly with her character and made the magic happen, made the audience believe in a way that happens infrequently even with the greatest of companies. With these performances, the gifted Miss Fakhoury -- only in her early 20s -- could be on the threshold of a truly brilliant career (Vicenzo Romano) Still in her student years, Maria Christina Fakhoury has collaborated with colleagues who rank among the world's most talented musicians. While still in Lebanon, she studied with soprano Aline Aoun and Mezzo soprano Galina Khaldiva then was directed under the full attention of baritone and conductor Ira Spaulding.
Miss Fakhoury is presently in Florence, Italy studying under the wings of known and loved Italian coloratura Susanna Rigacci.
