Welcome! I am Nereida García, soprano, linguist and education advocate.
As a professional singer who loves teaching, I am grateful for the career I've had, and desire to continue helping others achieve their own musical and linguistic ambitions!
Presently, I am bringing my lifetime of music performance, linguistic studies and education advocacy to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and online.
Let's link up!
Nereida García, soprano, born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley, has sung in the United States, Mexico, and Europe. Ms. García has performed with Opera in the Heights, The Living Opera, Sherman Symphony Orchestra, UNT Grand Chorus and Symphony Orchestra, Soma International Foundation, Foundation for Modern Music, was an Apprentice Artist with Sarasota Opera, and Artist in Residence with Amarillo Opera.
She has sung as the soprano soloist in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Brahms' Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Poulenc’s Gloria, Schubert’s Mirjam’s Siegesgesang, and on the operatic stages as Nedda in I Pagliacci, Cio Cio San in Madama Butterfly, Juliette in Roméo et Juliette, Mary Warren in The Crucible, Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi, Contessa Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro, Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, and the title role in Massenet’s Cendrillon.
She has been the recipient of the “A Woman’s Voice Award” granted by Women’s Chorus of Dallas, a finalist in the Dallas Opera Guild competition and guest soloist for the TMEA Texas All-State Mixed Choir. She has performed for the late and Honorable George H. W. Bush, former Consulate General of France Sujiro Seam, former Consulate General of Italy Fabrizio Nava, and has represented her family’s home state in Mexico at the International Festival of Tamaulipas. An advocate for foreign language studies and educational funding, Ms. García performed annually for the World Affairs Council of Houston Language Symposia.
Presently, Ms. García is working on a new program titled, “Flores Hispanoamericanas,” a program filled with beautiful works on love and the beauty of flowers sung in Spanish and Portuguese. This recital is an extension of her recently concluded recital tour titled “Popurrí Musical: Raíces Hispanoamericanas.”
This academic year, Ms. García will continue her work in academia as a Professor of Music, and is expanding her private studio in Dallas, TX where she is presently accepting new students of all ages and musical and linguistic backgrounds.
