About Lindsay Feldmeth Westra

Classical

Lindsay Feldmeth Westra is a soloist with San Pedro Opera. (www.sanpedroopera.com)

Recent roles include Leonora in Il Trovatore and Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana. She was also featured by Claremont Concert Orchestra as the soprano soloist in Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

Born in Hollywood, California, she moved to Austria as an undergraduate so that she could study opera with Horiana Branisteanu at the Mozarteum. She earned her master's degree in opera at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg and then completed her training with Mirella Freni at CUBEC in Italy and with Ruth Falcon in New York City. She has also had the privilege of working with Montserrat Caballé, Jeannine Altmeyer, Sergio Bertocchi, Hartmut Höll, Armen Guzelimian and Dame Elisabeth Schwarzkopf in masterclasses.

She first trained as a coloratura soprano, making her operatic debut as the Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute in the Karl-Böhm-Saal of the Salzburger Festspielhaus at the age of 23. After shining in several coloratura roles, her voice grew in size and color, developing into a more dramatic repertoire. Her powerful sound is best suited to the music of Verdi, Wagner and Richard Strauss.

Devoted to promoting the “unheard voices” of underprivileged musicians, she won a Davis Project for Peace prize in 2009. She has organized two global opera festivals, the Kathmandu Music for Peace Festival in Nepal and the No. 1 Ladies’ Opera Festival in Botswana. The festivals are designed to equip and inspire musicians who do not have first-world resources. They have included master classes for emerging Tswana opera singers, scholarships for gifted Nepali musicians, support for local Christian children’s ministries, and a music therapy workshop for AIDS-affected pre-schoolers.

She is married to Rev. Rick Westra, the pastor of Trinity Christian Reformed Church in Artesia, California. They have a 4-year-old son.
