Biography

American soprano Stacey Franklin delights audiences with her shimmering tone and expressive artistry. As a featured soloist on the Houston Chamber Choir’s 2015 album soft blink of amber light (MSR Classics), Franklin is hailed by Fanfare magazine for “crystal-clear diction, dead-on intonation, and fearless fluency in the numerous treacherous turns of her lines.” The native Houstonian has been presented on stage and in concert by Ars Lyrica, Bravura Concert Series, Grace Song, Inc., Greenbriar Consortium, Imperial Arts, Lone Star Lyric Theater, Mercury: The Orchestra Redefined, The Nova Arts Project, Opera in the Heights, Opera Vista, and Zephyr Ensemble.  Operatic highlights include Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel), Madame Goldentrill (The Impresario), Zerbina (La Serva Padrona), and Angelica (Handel’s Orlando).  Having earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance from Baylor University, Franklin refined her skills at apprenticeship programs in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Also a charter member of Six of One - Houston’s premier all-female a cappella ensemble, a seventh season member of the Houston Chamber Choir, and a sought-after professional harpist, she maintains an active musical presence in the greater Houston area.
