About Nan Lambertz-Schager
Nan Lambertz-Schager is a classically trained soprano and pedagogue originally from South Dakota. They hold a Bachelor’s degree in voice performance from the University of South Dakota, and Masters degrees in Voice Performance and Voice Pedagogy from Syracuse University.
Their varied performance background includes choral ensembles, operas, musicals, as well as solo work throughout their career. Not one to be stuck to a singular genre, Nan has studied and performs classical, musical theatre, and jazz/contemporary repertoire. Their research in singing focuses on the accessibility of opera for both singers and audiences as well as belting techniques throughout Broadway’s repertoire, from Golden Age to contemporary.
Nan has taught students of all ages, from just starting out to life-long singers. At Syracuse University, they taught voice class for non majors, assistant directed operas, and created pandemic coursework for opera workshops. Nan is a firm believer that everyone can sing and thinks there is nothing more rewarding than helping students find their voice.
When not teaching, Nan will read any book put in front of them, knit or crochet garments through little experience but sheer tenacity, and spend as much time as they can with their husband and daughter.
