Amy Frega’s love for singing started at an early age. Singing in church choirs and amateur bands.
She then went on to follow her passion in a serious manner by pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Music at the American University in Cairo with a double major in Music Technology and Performance in the class of Neveen Allouba. During her studies, she was awarded Highest Achievement in Music Technology and graduated with a Highest Honors award. In the meantime, she started her career as a Jazz/Pop singer, appearing regularly in some of Cairo’s most popular stages with many band formations, including her duo “Voice and Bass”. She also took her voice to the musical theater stage, where she performed the lead role of Audrey in “Little Shop of Horrors”, Leila in the Egyptian musical “Leila”, and toured in the U.S.A. with the Arabic version of “Les Miserables”.
In 2017 she moved to Düsseldorf, Germany, where she finished her Masters in Classical Singing at the Robert Schumann Music College. Since her time in Germany, she has been able to perform in both the Jazz/Pop and Classical scene. Some of her rather Jazz/Pop and improvisational performances include her solo performance in the production of “Jeff Koons” by the Düsseldorf Theater, her collaborations with Projekt-il in performance art events, her own Concert at the Philara Collection, as well as regularly taking part in the “Cultural Exchange and Integration through Performing Arts” program in Greece.
The classical side of her life includes many Lied duo performances, one of which was broadcasted on WDR 3 radio station, as well as being a soloist in Oratorio concerts, of which are: Handel’s “Messiah”, and Mendelssohn’s “Psalm 42” and “Lobgesang”. Last but not least, her appearance in Opera productions, most importantly as Pamina in “The Magic Flute” and Susanna in “The Marriage of Figaro”.
Frega considers herself a collaborative artist, having immense joy in creating performances that involve many disciplines of artistic and musical expression. The latest example would be her self-written performance “Tarabeza” shown at the Düsseldorf Festival.
