ANDREA FULLINGTON (soprano) has been singing and making music with others from age 3. After receiving a voice degree from UC Santa Barbara and a Masters in Early Music Vocal Performance from Indiana University's Early Music Institute, Andrea settled in the Bay Area in 1993 and began performing and recording with many different ensembles specializing in music written before 1750. She was a founding member of the unique and controversial ensemble Bimbetta, which explored the feminine perspective and the human drama in the secular and theatrical music of 17th century Italy and England. Andrea has appeared as a soloist at many of the Early Music Festivals in the USA and Europe and has recorded with Theatre of Voices, American Bach Soloists, and Magnificat and others. While working with Paul Hillier and Theatre of Voices, Andrea completed a recording of John Cage's music as well as Steve Reich's Proverb, after singing its premier at Lincoln Center and touring the United States and Europe with Steve Reich and musicians. Since the birth of her daughter, Laurel, in 1998, Andrea has sung primarily with local ensembles and, since the autumn of 2002, has taught Music Together, a private program that introduces music to preschoolers and their parents. In July, 2003, she purchased Wee Play, a children's play center in Albany, CA, that hosts many different music classes and activities for young children.
