Pamela Blevins Beasley, soprano, has sung many leading and supporting operatic and musical theater roles with Fort Worth Opera, Birmingham Civic Opera, Pensacola Opera, Mobile Opera, Southern Regional Opera, Maxwell Theater Troupe, Southwestern Opera Theater and University of Montevallo Lyric Theater. Roles in opera, operetta and musical theater have included: “Mimi” La Boheme – Puccini; “Zerlina” Don Giovanni – Mozart; “Mother”  Amahl and the Night Visitors – Menotti; “Yum-Yum” The Mikado – Gilbert and Sullivan; “Jenny” Down in the Valley – Weill; “Mary”  Little Mary Sunshine – Boykin; “Marian” The Music Man – Willson and both “Julie” and “Carrie” in Carousel-Rodgers and Hammerstein.  Her performance experience has also included an active oratorio and sacred concert engagement schedule in Virginia, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and New York.  Highlights include appearing as the featured soprano soloist at Carnegie Hall in a sacred choral concert. Oratorio repertoire performed includes: Messiah – Handel; Gloria – Vivaldi; Magnificat-J. S. Bach and Rutter; Requiem – Faure, Rutter and Mozart; Mass in C – Mozart and Beethoven; Missa Brevis – Haydn;  Britten’s Festival te Deum, Rejoice in the Lamb and Ceremony of Carols; and Mendelssohn’s Elijah, St. Paul and Hymn of Praise. She has appeared locally with the Virginia Consort, the Oratorio Society and the Charlottesville and University Symphony.  She is also an active recitalist in various venues including the universities where she has taught and locally with the Wednesday Morning Music Club and CMTA.

Teaching has been an integral part of Pamela’s musical career.  Her students have been winners at state (Virginia and Alabama) and regional (Mid-Atlantic and Southeast) National Association of Teachers of Singing events and have been invited to compete at the National level NATS auditions. Her students also include winners at district Metropolitan Opera auditions.  Many have pursued graduate performance degrees at some of the finest music schools in the U.S., and are now performing professionally in the U.S. as well as internationally.  She has served on the faculties of Operafestival di Roma, Rome, Italy; James Madison University School of Music; Mary Baldwin College; Liberty University; University of Mobile; University of South Alabama; and Auburn University at Montgomery.  In addition to applied voice, she has taught solo vocal literature, vocal pedagogy, vocal diction, and has directed opera workshops and choral ensembles.

As a student Pamela was a frequent state and regional level winner at NATS auditions at the Alabama chapter auditions and Southeast Regional auditions. Professionally she is member of the NATS organization and served a four-year term as State Governor for Alabama’s Chapter of the NATS and a two-year term as a Board Member for VA-NATS.  She is also a frequent adjudicator/clinician for both vocal and choral competitions, workshops and festivals.

Mrs. Beasley received the Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Montevallo and Master of Music degree from Southwestern Seminary.  She studied voice with Benjamin Middaugh (DM, Florida State University), Lynda Poston-Smith (MM, Manhattan School of Music).  She studied vocal pedagogy with James McKinney (author, The Diagnosis and Correction of Vocal Faults, past national president of National Association of Teachers of Singing),  Robert Burton (DM, Indiana University), and Jeanette Lovetri (Somatic Voicework –training specific to singers interested in Contemporary Commercial Music).   She has received numerous awards and was selected for Outstanding Women of America, 1981, and Who’s Who in America, 2007.
