Soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon, a 2006 graduate of Davis High School, will be featured in a leading role in the March 14-16 production of the Benjamin Britten opera “The Turn of the Screw” (based on the Henry James novella) at Bard College in New York, where she is a graduate student.

Fitz Gibbon earned multiple honors while growing up in Davis, winning the Concerto Competition at Davis High School, as well as honors in the Mondavi Center’s Young Artists Competition. She was also a member of the Davis High Madrigals when that ensemble won Best Chamber Choir at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in the summer of 2006.

Fitz Gibbon went on to do her undergraduate studies at Yale, singing with the Yale Baroque Opera Project and Yale Opera. After Yale, she studied on a full scholarship at the Glenn Gould School of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, appearing in several opera productions.

She is pursuing a master’s degree at Bard College in New York, where she studies under soprano Dawn Upshaw. (Upshaw is remembered by Davis audiences for her appearance at the Mondavi Center in October 2005 in Osvaldo Golijov’s “Ayre.”)

This summer, Fitz Gibbon will appear as a Fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center in Massachusetts, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. She will be in residence at the festival from June through August.
