Vicki Madison

Vicki Fingalson Madison

Hometown: Ada, Minnesota

Department or Office: Music

What life experiences led you to your current career?: I grew up listening to my sisters sing and my mom teach piano, so I knew I wanted to major in music and be a teacher, but wasn't exactly sure what specific direction that would take. Then in Grad school, I made my opera debut and was hooked! I never looked back and love being able to teach a performance discipline and perform professionally - they feed each other and enhance my ability to be effective at both!

List the classes you teach: Applied Voice; Opera Workshop; Vocal Pedagogy; Vocal Repertoire; English, Italian, German and French Diction

In one sentence what is your advice for students to be successful?: Be vulnerable, and open to new experiences and possibilities.

What is your favorite book?: It's a tie: "A Soprano on Her Head" by Eloise Ristad and "A Mixture of Frailties" by Robertson Davies

What is your favorite hobby or activity outside of work?: Cooking with my husband (I'm the sous chef)
