Randa Rouweyha has consistently earned high critical acclaim for the beauty of her light lyric voice, her commanding stage presence, and her exceptional acting abilities. She has been described by DC critics as a soprano who “sings with exquisite purity of tone and ringing clarity”, possesses “a sterling voice”, and an “amazingly strong performer”. Cleveland Classical’s outstanding review of her portrayal of Lucia in Donizetti’s “Lucia di Lammermoor” summed up her performance with the following: “Randa Rouweyha was stunning as Lucia. Her light lyric soprano voice, strong stage presence, and charm brought the role to life.”  

Ms. Rouweyha is an experienced and seasoned performer, who has sung leading roles at numerous prestigious venues both nationally and internationally. In Washington, DC she performed regularly for many years in leading roles at The In Series, one of DC’s innovative opera and musical companies. She also had the honor to perform several mainstage roles with Washington National Opera at the distinguished Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. A native of Ohio, Randa takes special pride in her hometown performances with Opera Western Reserve at Youngstown, Ohio’s beautiful historic Stambaugh Auditorium, where she sang: Lucia in “Lucia di Lammermoor,” Adina in Donizetti’s “L’Elisir d’Amore”, and Rosina opposite renowned tenor Lawrence Brownlee’s Count Almaviva in Rossini’s “Il Barbiere di Siviglia”. Some of her memorable concerts outside the US include a special solo recital at the esteemed Al Bustan Music Festival in her land of origin, Lebanon; and more recently at the Zorlu Performing Arts Center in Istanbul, Turkey where she performed the role of Queen Elizabeth II in a new musical about princess Diana, “Queen of the People’s Hearts”.  

Equally at home with oratorio and chamber music, Miss Rouweyha has been a soloist with several of Washington DC’s respected chamber and choral ensembles; as well as a featured award-winning recitalist for Vocal Arts Society’s art song competition, where she was later appointed as an adjudicator for the event. Randa also has a particular affinity and love for languages. She has sung in English, Arabic, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Latin, and most recently, Chinese at the Chinese New Year celebrations in DC. Randa has also expanded her singing palate into other genres, such as classical Arabic music, which she has had the pleasure to sing at many events and concerts. Some of her favorite artists include Asmahan and Fairuz.  

In addition to her own singing career, Randa is a skilled voice teacher who enjoys helping singers build their voices through her knowledge of vocal pedagogy and bel canto technique. She earned her master of music degree at Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, and her bachelor of music degree at Youngstown State University in Ohio. Randa’s teaching philosophy is to train the voice with a healthy singing production based on each student’s individual needs. Her focus is on proper technique and specific exercises to strengthen the voice. Her goal is to help students sing with ease and command of their technique so that they may be expressive, communicative, artistic, and true to the music they are singing.
