Lynette Pfund, soprano, a native of Houma, Louisiana, holds degrees from Loyola University in New Orleans and the Manhattan School of Music. She has appeared in a wide variety of operatic roles including Drusilla in Monteverdi’s “L’incoronazione di Poppea,” Frasquita in Bizet’s “Carmen,” Pamina in Mozart’s “Die Zauberflöte” and Karolina in Smetana’s “Two Widows,” in which she was described by the New York Times as “the singer with the easiest stage manner and the most fluid vocal technique.
