The American mezzo-soprano, Margaret Clair, trained in San Francisco with Blanche Thebom, who was the leading Mezzo Soprano at the Metropolitan Opera for 25 years.
In 2001, Margaret Clair moved to Iowa. After singing professionally in the San Francisco Bay Area and Europe for many years, South Eastern Iowa has provided many opportunities to keep her busy on stage, television, radio, and film. She is a founding member of Way Off Broadway Musical Theater, and splits her performance time between musical theater, opera, and recital. She is a frequent guest symphony soloist and is adjunct voice professor at Iowa Wesleyan College.
