Lauren Asheim has been studying the art of singing and performing for over 20 years. She graduated from St. Olaf College in 2003 with a degree in Interdisciplinary Fine Arts with an emphasis in Dance and Music. Lauren started out singing jazz with big bands all throughout her education and then began to study classical voice technique in 1995. Her study of the voice continues even today with Emma Small and David Jones.
She has performed everything from operetta, to performance art, to new wave rock. Experimenting with the range that the human voice is capable of producing is a passion that Lauren is eager to share. In the past, Lauren has performed with the Guthrie Theater, Walker Art Center, VocalEssence, TigerLion Arts, the History Theater and other companies in the Twin Cities. She currently sings classic country songs with her guitar (especially Dolly Parton songs); she is writing mantra music to accompany yoga and meditation classes and is studying a number of operatic roles. Lauren has a deep love for Kundalini yoga and meditation and uses music, singing and chanting in her Kundalini yoga classes. She also teaches voice lessons and gets excited to help students unlock their authentic voice and bringing ease and power to vocal production.
