Brittney Leemon spent much of her early childhood living in Hawaii, Kentucky, Germany, and Virginia due to her father’s military career. When finally settling in her family’s native Wisconsin, Brittney developed a love of the arts through her school’s art and music programs.
Brittney graduated in 2014 from Luther College in Decorah, IA with a Bachelor of Arts in Vocal Music Performance and Management. During her time at Luther, Brittney sang for three years in the college’s flagship touring ensemble, the Nordic Choir. With the ensemble, Brittney had the opportunity to share the Lutheran choral tradition with audiences all over the country as well as the British Isles. It was also at Luther that Brittney found her true passion in opera- first as a performer, and later as a behind-the-scenes promotional manager of the annual show.
Currently, Brittney is an Arts and Administration Master’s student at the University of Oregon, and looks forward to finishing her degree in June of 2017. Brittney serves on Cascadia Concert Opera’s board as the Marketing and Public Relations Chair and works as the Administrative Chair in the University of Oregon’s chapter of Emerging Leader’s in the Arts Network (ELAN).
In her free time, Brittney enjoys baking and traveling to various gigs with her opera singing partner, Evan. Surrounded by the beautiful Oregon landscape, Brittney’s favorite activity in Eugene is to walk the various public parks and relax in the cool, occasionally sunny weather.
