Deborah Anderson is a native of Colorado who has spent the majority of her life performing on stage. As a second-year Graduate vocal performance student at the Lamont School of Music, Deborah performed the lead role of Pamina in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. Most recently, she made her professional chorus debut in Opera Colorado’s production of Carmen and CD recording of Gerald Cohen’s Steal A Pencil For Me as chorus role. Since taking a leave from her graduate studies in 2021, Ms. Anderson has been seen on stage with The Eagles on their “Hotel California” Tour in addition to singing with the Evan’s Choir for United Way Fundraiser featuring keynote speaker Renée Elise Goldsberry.
Deborah also had the opportunity to sing in the Colorado Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker with the Evan’s Choir. She was recently selected to sing the National Anthem for Colorado Remembers 9/11: Commemoration & National Security Forum hosted by the Governor of Colorado. As an undergraduate at Nyack College, Deborah performed at Lincoln Center, Steinway Hall, and she starred in the role of Dorothy in an off-Broadway production of The Wiz at the American Theatre of Actors. Deborah also toured throughout Asia as a vocalist with the Nyack College Chamber Choir. When she is not on stage, Ms. Anderson substitutes for elementary school teachers and enjoys interacting with the students gaining invaluable life lessons applied both on and off stage.
