Masterclass

I believe in creating a supportive and enthusiastic working environment when working with young artists in a public Masterclass setting. The Masterclass will focus on presentation techniques, character analysis, and a myriad of vocal ideas tailored to the artist but also for the benefit of every artist in the room.

The voice students of the UNCW Department of Music were treated to a master class with our distinguished alumna, soprano Mary Claire Curran.  From the moment she took the stage, Mary Claire revealed herself to be the ideal role model for our students: vivacious, creative, and a gifted voice teacher and singer.  She encouraged each performer to ground themselves, release their individual tensions and connect with the emotion of their music. For our young singers, this exceptional experience in Mary Claire’s master class created the spark to continue refining and honing their pieces for upcoming performances.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining and inspiring afternoon.

Recital

My recital package includes “Songs of Heaven and Earth,” “Home Again,” and “Last Songs: The Last Songs of Composers”. In addition, I am happy to custom create a recital based on your interests and needs.

Mary Claire Curran’s performance of her recital program Songs of Heaven and Earth was simply dazzling. This ambitious program covered a substantial range of styles, and expressive and technical demands, from Russian arias to Mahler songs and post-romantic French opera, to Jerry Bock’s silly confection “Vanilla Ice Cream”. Mary Claire more than met these demands with vocal and musical élan.

Cabaret

My popular cabaret series includes:

  • The St. Patrick’s Day Themed Kiss Me, I’m Irish!

  • Broadway Brunch

  • Halloween Themed I Put A Spell On You

  • NYC in Paris

  • A Contemporary Woman

  • The Make-Up & Break-Up Cabaret (true stories paired with songs about the trials and tribulations of dating in New York City)

Whenever I hear “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling,” I think of Mary Claire Curran and her delightful cabaret Kiss Me, I’m Irish which she performed at the Cabaret at Germano’s in celebration of her Irish heritage for St. Patrick’s Day. Her exquisite voice and her effervescent personality made every song memorable. Personal favorites include Danny Boy and The Wild Rover. Mary Claire Curran’s Broadway Brunch featuring Broadway show tunes and Disney songs enraptured an audience of all ages. I Put A Spell On You is a sophisticated cabaret of Broadway standards, a little Pop music and seductive opera arias that bewitches audiences and showcases Mary Claire Curran’s versatility and extraordinary vocal skills.

Voice Lessons & Consults

I have a love for teaching and am lucky enough to teach in NYC. I teach musical theatre, classical, jazz, country, contemporary christian pop—whatever makes your heart sing! I own a large library of scores, spanning a broad spectrum of repertoire. I teach ages 6 years old—unlimited years old. My students have included a tv actress, a business executive (coaching him on public speaking and professional demeanor), and a student who wanted to improve their singing in New York City’s karaoke circuit.

I have written the bios, created and structured the websites, and written the social media copy for world renowned opera singers. In my consultations, I can provide feedback for resumes, bios, and website design.
