Lyric-Coloratura Soprano, Tracy Fehr has held numerous performances in Canada, North Africa, Central America and the UK. She performs with orchestras and chamber ensembles, and is increasingly in demand as a concert recitalist, known for her vocal agility, clarity of tone and sensitive interpretations.

Tracy specializes in Baroque and Early Music, frequently performing works by Handel, Mozart, Vivaldi, Dowland, and Bach. Tracy’s wide-ranging concert repertoire includes Opera, Art Songs, Lieder, and 20th Century, as well as Broadway favourites and arrangements of African-American Spirituals. Tracy creates well-crafted concerts choosing repertoire specifically geared to each audience, featuring Fauré, Bellini, Brahms, Schubert, Verdi, Puccini, de Falla, Valls, Villa Lobos, and Gershwin, and female composers such as Beatrice de Dia, Isabella Leonarda, Barbara Strozzi, Hildegard von Bingen, and Canadian composer, Jean Coulthard.

Tracy has been featured on HGTV’s Makeover Wish: Something to Sing About; Premier Christian Radio in London, England; Cross Rhythms Radio in Cheshire, UK; CHBC; Shaw TV; CBC radio; Giant FM, Penticton; Okanagan Life Magazine, Who Among Us; UBC Okanagan Minds and Music Series, and Tunis Live.net.

Tracy presents concerts in North America, the UK and Tunisia with A Song for Hope/Chansons Pour L’Espoir concert series, including performances at the British Embassy, Palais Ennejma Ezzahra, Sfax Municipal Theatre, and at universities, community halls, schools, churches and theatres. In 2008, Tracy and ACT Development, an organization that works with people at risk in Tunisia, began a livelihood project to assist single mothers and disadvantaged women. Through donations and monthly sponsorships, this non-profit organization helps unwed mothers and marginalized women receive training and funds to set up small home-based businesses. Tracy’s A Song for Hope/Chansons L’Espoir tours raise funds and awareness for the livelihood project through concerts, masterclasses, and radio and media interviews.

As an experienced vocal instructor at her private studios, Tracy focuses on the holistic approach to singing: healthy vocal production, understanding the support mechanism, the emotional elements of singing, and individual direction and goals for singers, using the Royal Conservatory of Music and supplemented curriculum. She works with intermediate to advanced singers and public speakers. Tracy also offers vocal therapy for individuals suffering from vocal injuries and physical challenges. Tracy holds a Bachelor of Music, Vocal Performance (with distinction) from the University of Alberta and an A.R.C.T. in Singing, Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto. She is a member of the BC Registered Music Teachers’ Association.
