Maureen Smith (Mary) has been praised for her “distinctive voice (that rings) out bright and clear” (Third Coast Daily). A graduate of the Peabody Conservatory of Music, Maureen is a relative new-comer to the Chicago music scene, by way of Milwaukee. During her time in Wisconsin, she performed with Milwaukee Opera Theatre (Autumn, Fairy Queen Fantasy), Present Music (Thanksgiving concert, 2013), Opera On Tap-Milwaukee (Amahl and the Night Visitors), Kalliope Vocal Arts (Opera galas, recitals) and Sunset Playhouse (Bug in a Rug touring children’s theater; Rose, Lumberjacks in Love). She spent the summer of 2015 in Pittsburgh, PA singing with Opera Theater of Pittsburgh, where she had the opportunity to premiere two new works by American composers: A New Kind of Fallout, OTP’s commissioned Eco-Opera, and the first of a new song cycle by a young Pittsburgh composer. Now living in Chicago, Maureen has performed extensively with the Niles Metropolitan Chorus and Musica Lumina Orchestra in recital and oratorio, and made her debut with Main Street Opera in September of 2016 as Nannetta in Falstaff. Moving into 2017, she can be seen singing with the Chicago chapter of Opera on Tap.
