Soprano April Fisher holds a bachelor’s degree in Romance Languages from Colorado College, where she discovered opera when cast as Amor in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice.  An ongoing passion for languages led to 5 years living abroad: in Switzerland, where she sang with the Geneva Amateur Operatic Society,  in Japan which included such diverse experiences as headlining a cover band and leading the soprano section for Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, in Italy for intense language, operatic music, and singing studies under Ester Castriota of the Conservatorio di Firenze, Elizabeth Chard of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentina, and Bianca Bernini of Teatro alla Scala.  Now settled in San Diego, April currently sings with San Diego Opera Chorus (2017’s Falstaff was her 20th production), is a core member of contemporary a capella group
