Marcelyn Lebovitz is a young dramatic mezzo-soprano with an impeccably versatile voice, capable of singing almost any style, from opera, to rock, and beyond. A lifelong artist, Marcelyn’s singing has been lauded as “achingly emotional” (Reading Eagle, 2019), “fragile but deadly” (Collegian, 2017), and “with a voice that drips menacingly stabby lyrics in the most velvet venom tones” (Fuzzy Logic, 2019) and she is often praised for her powerful on stage charisma and the richness and warmth of her voice.
Marcelyn is a graduate of the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts as well as the Pennsylvania State University and is currently pursuing her graduate degree in Vocal Arts at Temple University. During her education, Marcelyn has appeared in several opera productions, including Britten’s Turn of the Screw (Mrs. Grose), Adamo’s Little Women (Aunt March, Jo cover), and Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe (Queen of the Fairies). Marcelyn also spent several years as a soloist and member of the choir Essence of Joy directed by Dr. Anthony Leach during her undergraduate.
Though Marcelyn is an accomplished classical singer, she loves to branch out onto other stages. Marcelyn primarily considers herself a recording artist and songwriter. She has performed her original indie rock music all across the United States with her band, Lost Lake Spirits (formerly Marcelyn, the band). Since they officially formed in 2018 they have released three full length studio albums, created entirely by the band themselves.
Marcelyn also has an aptitude for teaching and directing. She is currently the alto section leader for the Reading Choral Society and has her own private voice studio, which specializes in teaching modern singers who aim to become recording artists by utilizing the techniques of contemporary commercial music. Marcelyn is also the co-founder and artistic director of Poptart Punk Opera, an edgy modern opera company which aims to promote diversity and make opera exciting and accessible to new audiences.
