Froya Olson is a soprano based in the Twin Cities. Before graduating with a Bachelor of Music from Lawrence University in 2017, she appeared in National Opera Association award-winning productions of The Tender Land, The Beggar’s Opera, and Hydrogen Jukebox under direction of Copeland Woodruff. Her visually artistic junior and senior recitals sensitively explored themes of women and the moon, and the kaleidoscopic navigation of identity. Outside of Lawrence University, Froya has played the role of Governess in Britten’s Turn of the Screw, Drusilla in Lâ incoronazione di Poppea, and Zweite Knabe in Die Zauberflöte. In 2016, Froya won first place at the Wisconsin National Association of Teachers of Singing competition and has been chosen this year as a finalist in the Minnesota Grieg Society competition, where she intends to proudly display her heritage.
