BrowerThe rising young mezzo-soprano Angela Brower grew up in Mesa, Arizona and studied at Arizona State University and Indiana University. While still studying, she began an active concert career and developed her operatic repertoire to include such roles as Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro and Hänsel in Hänsel and Gretel. Besides winning various awards and prizes during her studies, she also sang at Glimmerglass Opera as part of the 2008 Young American Artists Program.
