Take a look at my official bio.

Amanda Kay Boundy, Soprano

Born and raised in the small town of Eben Junction, Amanda Kay Boundy spent her youth in the rural Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Her musical education began with the country and bluegrass styles of Patsy Cline, George Straight, and Allison Krause, until she discovered classical music at the age of 16. Since then she’s divided her career between opera, oratorio, and choral solos. Opera roles include Monica in The Medium by Gian Carlo Menotti and Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert and Sullivan. Ms. Boundy was also the soprano soloist for several major works including Mozart’s Laudate Dominum and Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass, which was performed in Chichester, England with the Albion College Concert Choir. Ms. Boundy recently performed scenes as Blanche de la Force in Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites and Blonde in Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail, stage directed by Garnett Bruce at the Peabody Conservatory. In May, she will premiere a new one-act opera by Peabody composer Daniel Gil-Marca. During the summer of 2010 she will also perform the role of 2nd Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte with the Bay Area Summer Opera Theater Institute in San Francisco.
Ms. Boundy earned several awards and honors in and outside of music. From the Albion College music department she was awarded the Deal Voice Prize, the Jennie Worthington Cup, and the Stephen Wheeler Cup. She also won the Rosemary Russell Memorial Award from the Michigan Federation of Music Clubs, and Second Place for the Charlotte Rupple Voice Award from the Birmingham Musicale. In 2007, Boundy was the winner of Albion College’s annual concerto competition. Her work regarding women’s issues on campus also earned her Albion College’s President Bernard T. Lomas Project 250 Leadership Award.
In 2007, Ms. Boundy completed Bachelor of Arts degrees in Music Performance and Anthropology/Sociology at Albion College. She is also a certified English Language Arts teacher in the state of Texas. She currently studies with Marianna Busching at the Peabody Conservatory where she is pursuing a Master of Music degree in voice performance.
When she’s not pursuing music, Ms. Boundy has strong interests in cultural Anthropology, acting, and teaching English as a second language.

Work-study

I've been awarded a $1,000 work-study from BASOTI. This doesn't cover everything, but it is a start. Only about $3,000 more to go and then I can afford tuition and housing. They think I'm worth it, do you?!
