Barbara Steinhaus began her vocal training in Atlanta, Georgia, though a native of Madison, Wisconsin. She won honors, scholarships, and degrees: a BMusic from Georgia State University, a Music University of Illinois, and a DMA from the University of Georgia. Articles based on her doctoral thesis, “An Investigation of Marian Andersons’s Interpretation of Black Spiritual Art Songs in Selected Recording,” have been published in journals such as the NATS Journal of Singing. Highlights as a professional soprano include Steinhaus singing with Georgia Opera and Atlanta Opera Studio; in Francis Poulenc’s Gloria at Carnegie Hall, New York City in 1990; and in art song recitals such as Das Spanische Liederbuch (Wolf) with John Wustman at the piano. Currently she is the Department of Music Chair at Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia, teaching Applied Voice, Vocal Pedagogy, and music history courses. She has students at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and Syracuse University. In 2014, she went back to school earning a Graduate Certificate in Arts in Medicine from the University of Florida. Steinhaus is initiating new curriculum in this field serving both fine arts and health science majors, all the while maintaining a bedside musician practice at the Northeast Georgia Medical Center.
