Voice & Piano
Anne Burgett, from Swampscott, Massachusetts, graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor of Music in 2023, having double majored in vocal performance and philosophy. She studied
voice and opera with Nancy Gustafson during her time at Northwestern.
She has loved singing all her life; she sang in choirs as a child, and performed in a variety of musicals with North Shore Children’s
Theater in middle school and high school. While in high school, Anne attended Boston University Tanglewood Institute, where she learned foundational vocal technique, and expanded her knowledge
of classical music. She also worked as the assistant to the director of the Youth Choirs at Old North Church.
In her time at Northwestern, Anne had the opportunity to perform with wonderful ensembles, and to learn from incredible coaches, teachers, and colleagues. She sang in the ensemble of Monteverdi’s
L’Orfeo and Puccini’s La Boheme, and performed the role of Second Spirit in Die Zauberflöte with Northwestern Opera Theater. Through Opera Projects for Undergraduate Students at Northwestern,
she was able to perform a variety of roles, such as Dame Perchque in Honegger’s Les Aventures du roi Pausole, the Sandman in Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, Lola in Moore’s Gallantry, and Juno in
Oenbach’s Orpheus and the Underworld. She has also had the opportunity to sing the roles of La Contessa, Susanna and Barbarina in Le Nozze di Figaro, and Fiordiligi in Cosi Fan Tutte through
summer festivals around the world. Anne has worked as a soloist and ensemble member with Northwestern University Chorale, and performed as the soprano soloist at the First Presbyterian
Church in Deereld, Illinois.
In the fall of 2023, Anne will be pursuing her Masters of Music at Boston University. She will be teaching Aural Skills to undergraduate music students, and studying voice with Penelope Bitzas.
