Featured Story

Metropolitan Opera singer returns to roots in The County



Growing up in Fort Fairfield, Teresa Herold '02 heard music every day of the week as her mother, Susan Herold, gave private violin and piano lessons in their home. She became a student on both instruments at age 5.

The 1998 Fort Fairfield High School graduate played in school bands and orchestras through the years and performed with the choirs, often as an accompanist. The diversity of her talent was recognized when she was named to three different All-State Music Festival ensembles: orchestra as a freshman playing viola, band as a junior playing flute and chorus as a senior.

It was not until she was a student at the University of Southern Maine that she took her first voice lesson. She intended to earn a music education degree in flute, but her professors encouraged her to pursue voice, as well. She studied with Ellen Chickering, associate professor of voice, and ended up with a double major in flute and voice music education.
