Biography

Alicia Grugett, coloratura soprano, was born in Havana, Cuba. Her family came to the United States when she was very young, to escape a communist regime, and she is happy to be an American citizen.

She began voice lessons at the age of 15, and at 16 years of age, she sang the part of “Amahl” in Amahl and the Night Visitors with the Creative Opera of Miami, which was also televised throughout the Southeastern United States. The Miami Herald critic, James Roos, wrote of her performance:
“Alicia was that rare thing in the Menotti world. An Amahl who could sing and act.”

She continued to sing in various musicals during her high school years and graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice and received her Master of Music degree in Voice Performance from the University of Michigan, both on scholarship.

Ms. Grugett has sung with the Miami Opera, the Pittsburgh Opera apprentice program, the New Jersey State Opera, the Capital City Opera (Atlanta), the Allentown Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony and has won numerous vocal competitions.

Alicia left music completely, to be a dedicated wife and stay-at-home
mother. She has recently returned to singing due to:
1- the fact that her children will be entering college soon, and
2- her dear father’s recent death. He was her greatest fan and always believed in her talent.
She is newly inspired and ready to continue with her lifelong aspirations, and feels that her pursuit of a musical career is a loving and fitting tribute to her deceased father and caring mother.
