Margaret Jane Wray, a dramatic soprano with an international reputation, offers private voice lessons on Thursdays at The Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, Wis. Wray made her debut with the Metropolitan Opera in 1987 as Annina in Verdi’s “La Traviata.” She was quickly identified as one of the most talented young artists in the field and success soon followed. Wray went on to appear in lead roles with many of the world’s leading opera companies, including the Metropolitan Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Cincinnati Opera, Seattle Opera, La Scala, the Bavarian State Opera, the Berlin State Opera, Opéra National de Paris, La Monnaie, L’Opéra de la Bastille, Oper Frankfurt, Teatro Regio (Turin), Théâtre du Capitole, Teatro Massimo Bellini, Opéra de Nice, and Welsh National Opera, among others.
In addition, Wray has had a prolific career as a concert artist appearing with many of the world’s finest conductors and great orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, and National Symphony Orchestra, among others.
She and her family have lived in Hudson for 21 years
