Johanna Albrecht is a voice instructor at Kent School in Kent, CT.
Growing up in a music-oriented family in Massachusetts, Ms. Albrecht became interested in music at a young age. She took her first piano lesson at age seven, and, encouraged by her grandmother, began singing at fourteen. Throughout her teenage years, she began to explore music more in-depth and headed off to Smith College intent on majoring in music. After graduating from Smith, she went on to join a dancing group in New York where she also had a singing role. Soon after, she married and followed her new husband back to Germany. As she adjusted to the new environment, she began to study voice at the Leopold Mozart Konservatorium in Augsburg, Germany. There, she performed many classical German operas and operettas. Though her singing career in Germany was relatively successful, she moved back to the United States to obtain a Master’s degree in both music and theatre from Smith.
After completing her degrees, Ms. Albrecht started her singing career in New York. She sang solos at the Kennedy Center, Emmanuel Church, Weill Recital Hall, Town Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, and the New York State Theatre. She performed as a singer-actress in off-Broadway musical theatre productions and in the role of Mother Abbess in six U.S. productions of The Sound of Music.
