STUDIO

SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, SALT LAKE CITY

“(Fillmore’s) voice warmed and engaged the audience as she surrendered to love.”

Molly Fillmore's experience in professionally singing both mezzo-soprano and dramatic soprano repertoire, successfully transitioning between both, gives her a unique perspective on maintaining a healthy technique as one adjusts to demands of varying tessitura and orchestral intensity.  

 

Her teaching philosophy is based on the belief that every student brings their own individual set of vocal and general life experiences to the process, and therefore, rather than asking a student to conform to a specific technique, she adapts her teaching to:  1) the technical needs of the student, 2) their singing goals, and 3) the way in which they learn well.  She believes that every classical singer deserves a technique that allows them to sing evenly throughout the range, without concerns regarding ease of production, consistently singing a particular part of the range well, agility, etc. 

In 2004, she was named Assistant Professor of Voice at Michigan State University, eventually earning tenure and promotion to Associate Professor of Voice. During this time, she began singing dramatic soprano roles, and made her Metropolitan Opera debut.  

In 2014, she accepted a position and promotion to Professor of Voice at the University of North Texas, one of the nation's largest and most dynamic Colleges of Music. In 2017, she was named Chair of the Division of Vocal Studies at UNT.  

Some recent studio member successes include: tenure-track faculty appointments (University of Oregon and University of Nebraska-Omaha), multiple adjunct faculty appointments, and acceptances into major young artist programs and renowned graduate schools.  She regularly gives master classes and has adjudicated many voice competitions.
