Newlyweds Cameron and Allison Steinmetz employ their vocal artistry in classical, musical theater, jazz, and contemporary music. They have shared the stages of Vermont for over six years both as concert soloists and singer-actors with The Opera Company of Middlebury, the Opera Theatre of Weston, Lost Nation Theater, the Green Mountain Mahler Festival, the Rutland Area Chorus, the Vermont Collegiate Choral Consortium, Counterpoint Chorus, and more. Most recently, they delighted audiences with their sweet, genuine rendition of The Fantasticks as young lovers Matt and Luisa and performed together in Barn Opera’s inaugural production of Madama Butterfly. They were brought together through music and are pleased to be sharing their love of music – and of each other – with Stowe Performing Arts.
Cameron, a tenor, studied at Green Mountain College and Castleton State College and has experience in stage management, composition, and arts administration, and is a proficient pianist, organist, and tribal percussionist. He is the Executive Director of the Monteverdi Music School in Montpelier. He has performed leading roles in contemporary and classic musical theater productions, has appeared as an ensemble member with some of Vermont’s most prestigious opera companies and choruses, and as a concert soloist throughout the state. Cameron is also a member of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s educational quartet, Ah! Cappella, with whom he travels to the farthest corners of Vermont, bringing music and education to elementary school students.
Allison received her M.M. From the University of Montreal and her B.M. From the Crane School of Music. Described as “feisty and funny” on stage, and with a “brilliant, nuanced, and lyrically expressive” (Times Argus) soprano voice, Allison is known to excel in all vocal genres she pursues. She has a keen interest in contemporary music and has enjoyed premiering operatic roles in both the US and Canada, as well as playing leading roles in musical theater and opera productions in Vermont and beyond. Allison is a highly sought after concert soloist, performing frequently in both classical and contemporary masterworks that span the soprano repertoire, and she has appeared with many of the prominent ensembles, opera companies, and theaters of Vermont. www.allisondevery.com
