Lisa Dawson and Tammie Huntington, Sopranos, first began collaborating on the opera stage at Ball State University when they were cast as Suor Angelica and Suor Genovieffa in the opera by Puccini during their graduate studies. After working together as graduate assistants in the Ball State University Opera Theatre, they each joined the faculty of Indiana Wesleyan University in different years, becoming colleagues in voice and opera in the School of Arts and Humanities Division of Music. Delighted with the way their differing personalities and voices complement and highlight each other, Dawson and Huntington, together with pianist Phoenix Park-Kim, formed the group Soprani Compagni for the express purpose of researching, compiling and performing soprano art song duets, oratorio and opera scenes; modeling soprano collaboration; and commissioning new works for soprano duet.
