Nashville, Tennessee-based soprano Alissa Ruth Suver’s warmth, clarity, and flexibility have allowed her to feel comfortable singing in a variety of genres, though she performs primarily early and choral music. Her career has led her to sing all over the country.
An Ohio native, Alissa is now actively performing with professional ensembles around the United States, most recently adding Conspirare (Austin, TX), the Santa Fe Desert Chorale (Santa Fe, NM), Skylark Ensemble (Boston, MA), True Concord (Tucson, AZ), and The Crossing (Philadelphia, PA) to her resume. She is frequently on the roster for the Beckenhorst Press recording choir at Aire Born Recording Studio (Zionsville, IN), and she is a Principal Singer with the Bach Ensemble of St. Thomas (Cincinnati, OH), in addition to performances with both the choral and instrumental ensembles at her alma mater, Capital University.
Her love of music has been central to her life from an early age; she is the daughter of two music teachers, and can’t remember a time when she wasn’t in rehearsal! She began her post-collegiate career first as a secondary choral music director herself, teaching middle and high school choirs in Ohio public schools, before deciding to pursue performing on a more regular basis. In addition to her performance work, she is a soprano section leader for Westminster Presbyterian Church Choir (Nashville, TN), a private voice teacher in the Nashville area, and is regularly hired as an administrative assistant for various performance projects.
Alissa holds a Bachelor of Music in Education degree from Capital University in Bexley, Ohio.
