Patricia Baxter Wright (Doctorate, Musical Arts, University of Colorado – Boulder) has performed cabaret, musicals, jazz, spirituals and classical music to wide acclaim in France, Germany and major US cities. She has studied with Martin Rich of the New York Metropolitan Opera and with Erika Seeger-Mueller of the Berlin and Mannheim Opera Houses. She has performed with greats such as pianist Lambert Orkis, jazz saxophonist Keith Oxman and the cabaret duo William Bolcom and Joan Morris. She has appeared as Luisa in Fantasticks at the Schnawwl Theatre in Mannheim, Germany, and at Denver’s Germinal Stage in Ogden Nash’s musical revue Progress May Have Been All Right Once But It Went On Too Long. Ms. Wright has performed cabaret at Dazzle Jazz, the Mercury Café, and for many benefits. She can be heard on her CD “Cabaret Sauvignon.”

Corinne Denny is known for her unique, rich soprano voice and her intense connection to the characters she portrays. Corinne holds a dual Masters of Music in Opera and Musical Theatre Performance from Arizona State University, and is currently studying for a Performer’s Certificate in Voice at the University of Denver. Locally, Corinne has performed at the PACE Center, the Aurora Fox Theatre, and with the Boulder Opera Company. Her Musical Theatre and Opera credits include: Micaela (Carmen), Vanessa (cover, Vanessa), Cathy (The Last 5 Years), The Witch (Hansel and Gretel), Erste Dame (Die Zauberflöte), La Zia Principessa (Suor Angelica), Chiffon (Der kleine Horrorladen), Jenny (Die Dreigroschenoper), Elmire (Tartuffe), Erma (Anything Goes!), and Fastrada (Pippin).

Adriana Teodoro-Dier completed a Doctorate in Collaborative Piano from the University of Miami, and holds additional degrees in Piano Performance from Cincinnati College-Conservatory and Lawrence University. She also completed a degree in Physics and is a visual artist with a penchant for producing bold, nature-inspired abstract pieces. Seeking ways to fuse music and art in live performance, she has recently given piano recitals featuring original paintings. Having newly relocated to the Denver-Metro area, Adriana continues to enjoy work as both an instrumental and an opera/musical theatre collaborative pianist, maintains a private teaching studio, and plays violin with a Denver-based indie/folk band.
