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 believed that she could not give her children a stable and loving home environment while meeting the demands of a music career. Recently, though, she has decided to sing again. This is due, in part, 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. The burning desire to sing, which she had lost for a while, has magically reappeared since her father passed away. It's almost as if he is watching over her and willing her to return to music.
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.
This mini CD of "The Prayer" and Time to Say Goodbye" (Con Te Partiro'), (both made famous by Andrea Bocelli) is Alicia's second offering on CD Baby. In it
she shares her tremendous JOY, PASSION and LOVE of music.
