About Lyric Light Opera of the Northwest
Founder & Artistic Director
Brenda Mueller was discovered by a singing teacher at an early age and encouraged to develop her remarkable singing voice. Having studied with several premier vocalists, instructors, and coaches she embarked on a versatile musical career that has spanned more than 25 years. She has been a featured soloist throughout the United States and was well-received on her European tour. Her numerous operatic and musical theatre roles include such beloved favorites as the title role in "Lakme", "Mimi" (La Boheme), "Pamina" (Die Zauberflote), "Susanna" (Le Nozze di Figaro), and "Sophie" (Der Rosenkavalier). In addition to an outstanding voice and unusually broad vocal range, her musical skills also extend to the piano, and she has had a successful career as a vocal accompanist to numerous performing and recording artists. Recently her talents have been focused on giving back to the community through regional benefit and charitable concerts as well as assisting children in finding their passion for music, having touched the lives of over 4000 young people.
Currently, her busy schedule includes a private voice studio, from which she coaches many distinguished singers, instrumentalists, and recording groups, as well as directing and coordinating various aspects of Lyric Light Opera of the Northwest, the founding of which was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.
She has directed several musicals in recent years, including Annie Get Your Gun, The Sound of Music, Annie, Brigadoon, Oklahoma, Beauty and the Beast, and The King and I - all of which reflect her trademark of excellence and highest quality - from the elaborate/breathtaking sets, authentic costumes, angelic vocal performances to the heartwarming and uplifting messages. They not only satisfied the most critical viewer, but received rave reviews from industry professionals as well.
