  About the Presenter:  

Felicia Melcer holds dual degrees in Vocal and Theater Performance.  It is her belief that a song is a monologue with pitch, rhythms and inner expression.  Felicia has been able to share this belief with countless students of all ages and experience levels for many years.  She has been blessed to be able to implement this philosophy in her own Musical Theater roles including Aldonza in Man of La Mancha, Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls, Amalia Balash in She Loves Me and Agnes in I Do! I Do! and Fastrada in Pippin.  Felicia was the Owner and the Director of Central Florida Music Studio from 2005-2020 where she wrote and mounted musical theater productions for her voice students in such venues as the Margeson and Goldman Theaters at Orlando Shakes. She also trained in Musical Improv  at the IO Theater in Chicago in 2018.  Felicia was so excited to share this skill back in Orlando, and ran classes and performances at both the Tinderbox and Ad Lib Theaters. Currently, she is thrilled  to be a voice teacher with Central Florida Vocal Arts, sharing the gift of music and theater with her amazing students.
