Light Dramatic Soprano, (Jugendlich-dramatischer Sopran)

Education: Bachelor of Music with an emphasis in Opera, 1996-2000



In March 2010, Lauren Welliehausen made her German debut in the Theater of Lower Saxony (Hildesheim) in a Symphony Orchestra concert.  She stepped in at the last moment to sing Othmar Schoeck’s work “Befreite Sehnsucht”.  Critics responded positively: “…was soprano Lauren Welliehausen, who interpreted the text very intelligently and above all very musically.   Welliehausen remained at all times in sovereign command, with no shrillness in the upper range whatsoever, without even a trace of strain.”  (Andreas Bode, Hildesheimer Allgemeine Zeitung).


In October/November 2009, Lauren gave two recitals in Germany and Switzerland.  In these recitals, she performed arias and lieder, as well as the world premiere of Patricia Leonard’s composition: “Demonstrations of Love”.  “Welliehausen shimmered in her new home debut, as it could not have been better prepared.  From the downbeat, her crystal clear tones in the high as well as the low register were impressive and well-crafted.  (Dieter Gömann, Neue Deister Zeitung).


In 2009, Welliehausen qualified to be a participant in the West Palm Beach Opera Competition. Two years earlier in 2007, she was a district winner in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Competition as well as a chosen participant in the Hans Gabor Belvedere Competition in Vienna, Austria.


Ms. Welliehausen has performed in the United States with companies such as One World Symphony (Ariadne auf Naxos), Lake George Opera (La Traviata, Madama Butterfly, H.M.S. Pinafore and Ariadne auf Naxos), New York Opera Project (Susannah) DiCapo Opera Theater, Opera Company of Brooklyn (Die Zauberflöte), Opera Northeast (Madama Butterfly), Champagne and Candlelight, Opera di Camera (The Old Maid and the Thief) and The Bronx Opera Company (The Bartered Bride).


Ms. Welliehausen studied German Lied under the direction of Norman Shetler at the 2006 Mozarteum Summer Academy in Salzburg, Austria. In addition, she spent the summer of 2004 in Vietri sul mare, Italy, at the Amalfi Coast Music Festival singing La Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro and numerous concerts around the Amalfi region.


An avid performer of new music, Ms. Welliehausen made her Weill Hall (Carnegie Hall) debut in a joint concert in May, 2004, featuring a Requiem for Soprano, Piano and Cello.   Barry L. Cohen of New Music Connoisseur remarked Lauren Bradley, a soprano with impressive credentials, did not disappoint….this reviewer became convinced he could listen to her all night long. In fact, I would drop everything to hear her in a solo concert.”


Additionally, Ms. Welliehausen was a featured soloist with the Clarion Music Society in 2007 at Weill Hall and was reviewed by David Moore of American Record Guide: "Lauren Bradley's expressive soprano,… were especially impressive."


She is a graduate of The Boston Conservatory’s Opera program.
