A North Carolina native, she studied voice at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and then received a British Marshall Scholarship for graduate study at London’s Royal Academy of Music. There she won the Ethel Bilsland Vocal Prize and was awarded the prestigious Diploma of the Royal Academy of Music, given for outstanding final recital. Her British appearances have included concerts at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, the Dartington International Festival, and the St. Martin-in-the-Fields Outstanding Young Artists’ Series. She completed a doctorate at the University of Maryland, and returned to North Carolina in 2006 to join the voice faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill, where she teaches studio voice, diction, and baroque performance practice. In addition to her work as a singer, Ms. Fischer is also a baroque dancer. Among her dance appearances are performances with The Publick Musick and Chatham Baroque, as well as teaching baroque dance at Oberlin’s Baroque Performance Institute.
