With her impressive vocal range, Lisa Vroman has won over audiences in opera houses and theaters throughout the United States.

    The Live at the Orinda concert series returns Sept. 22 with a performance by Broadway star and opera singer Lisa Vroman.
    After making her Broadway debut in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love, Vroman returned to the famed composer’s repertoire playing the role of Christine Daaé in his Phantom of the Opera.
    She performed the part for several years in New York and Los Angeles, before going on to a record-breaking six-year run in San Francisco for which she won a Theatre Critics’ Circle Award.  Vroman is also known for her work in Les Misérables and played both Fantine and Cosette, making her one of the few actresses to take on both roles.
    Vroman made her New York City Opera debut in The Most Happy Fella, starring as Rosabella opposite Paul Sorvino in the title role. She has continued to perform in opera houses all over the country, playing Charlotte in A Little Night Music at Michigan Opera Theatre, Lili Vanessi in Kiss Me Kate at the Glimmerglass Festival and Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus at the New Jersey Opera, among many others. 
    She sang the role of Johanna alongside Patti Lupone and George Hearn in the San Francisco Symphony’s Emmy Award winning Sweeney Todd in Concert and is a popular guest artist with renowned orchestras nationwide, including the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall.
