“I want to make a difference as a woman who dedicated her life to music. I deeply and sincerely hope I will be able to help you: performers on stage, at work, or at home to develop your confidence, technique and happiness in your performing life. This requires that we use our mind, our body, but above else, our heart and our soul.”
Internationally renowned soprano, Anne-Julia Audray, is currently President and CEO of the Artist Management Company, BELLE-EN-MUSIQUE, and serves as the new Executive Director for the Long Island Opera Company. An award winning opera singer herself, Mme. Audray is also a classical vocal professor, international voice consultant in public speaking for executives, founder and director of the French American Choir of New York, and founder of the Audray School for Singing at the Lincoln Center in New York City.
Madame Audray received her Premiere Prix from the prestigious Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique of Paris, where she studied vocal technique and stage performance in many genres such as opera, musical theater, operetta, and baroque music, as well as music theory, history and piano. She continued her studies in Paris at the Sorbonne with a concentration in Musicology. Upon her arrival in the United States, Ms. Audray earned her Professional Studies degree from Rice University, specializing in Non-Profit Management for Executives. Her true passion is in education, and her international experience in performing and enthusiasm for sharing the art of singing, as well as her entrepreneurial spirit has led her to dedicate her life to creating numerous projects in the world of the performing arts for more than 30 years in Paris, France, Houston, Texas and New York City, where she currently resides.
Madame Audray puts her technical virtuosity, stage experience and skills to the service
of men and women whose professional success hinges on their mastery of public
speaking, working with CEOs, politicians and educators hailing from all over the world.
Wishing to extend her teaching methods to a global audience, Madame Audray
developed and patented a voice analysis and software program by the name of
Vocebella in 2002. That same year, Vocebella was hailed by the French Senate as one
of the best new tech companies that year.
As the founder of the Audray School of Singing at Lincoln Center in New York City, she
oversees this program for middle and high school students, preparing them to perform
and audition for specialized performing arts schools and music conservatories at the
university level. In 2012, she created the Audray Competition for Young Singers at Carnegie Hall to find, recruit, and train young voices aged 10 to 17.
