PHOEBE FULLER SPICHIGER
Loves harmonizing with other women.
Phoebe’s talent and expertise shine through from the broadest of performance stages to the most intimate classroom settings.
She received a master’s degree in Vocal Performance from Roosevelt University, and has since dedicated her life to instilling a passion for the arts in her students. She served as the choral director at Boulder High School in Colorado, and a privat voice instructor at Elmhurst College. Phoebe has diverse knowledge in many musical settings, including jazz, pop, musical theatre, classical, and more. She was a member of the Grammy Award-Winning Chicago Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and has since held many other vocal and musical theatre roles in professional productions.
With the tools she has acquired through singing professionally and teaching music, Phoebe’s mission is to create a choir in Thun, Switzerland, focused on bringing harmony and healthy vocalization to students. A choir program taught exclusively in English will broaden the girls’ language while introducing them to American and British pop, jazz, country, and musical theatre.
