Galloway is an avid linguist and proponent of presenting modern works alongside
more standard opera and art song repertoire. Ms. Galloway looks forward to
the 2017 – 2018 season in which she will perform Dinah in Trouble in Tahiti
with Stillpointe Theatre, sing in the featured quintet in Sweeney Todd with
Baltimore Concert Opera, present a Scandinavian recital in both Baltimore
and Washington D.C., and debut with Bach in Baltimore.
Ms. Galloway spent the summer with the Milnes VoicExperience in Savannah where she sang selections from Cosí fan tutte, Carmen, Le Nozze di Figaro, and Anna Hunter. Her 2016 – 2017 season included Les Contes d’Hoffmann with Bel Cantanti Opera, St. Matthew Passion with Concert Artists of Baltimore, a Robert Frost Celebration with the Chamber Music Society of Maryland, St. John Passion at St. Bartholomew’s Church of Baltimore, and a reprise of Frances Pollock's "God as she makes this earth.” In the spring of 2017, Ms. Galloway joined the inaugural season of The Art Song Film Project, sang Amy in What Gets Kept by Frances Pollock at the New Music Gathering, and returned to the Baltimore War Memorial in a recital including Judith Weir’s “The Voice of Desire” and excerpts from Laura Kaminsky’s chamber opera As One.
Having performed roles in operas from Mozart and Massenet to Jonathan Dove and Frances Pollock, Ms. Galloway has also performed as a soloist in oratorio works with the Peabody Concert Orchestra, American Symphony Orchestra, and Concert Artists of Baltimore. In addition, she has performed many of the standard art song repertory alongside works such as Daron Hagen’s “Sappho Songs,” Peter Lieberson’s “Neruda Songs,” and Matthew Triplett’s “I Promise to Be Good.”
Ms. Galloway currently studies with Mark Schnaible after receiving her Masters of Music at Peabody Conservatory in Steven Rainbolt’s studio.
