Singer and vocal coach Peisha McPhee joined Broadway Theatre Project’s 2013 season once again this year as a guest artist. Peisha listened to apprentices perform songs in a range of styles. She urged apprentices to personalize the songs they chose in order to create a unique and memorable performance. Her insight into the “American Idol” competition gave apprentices valuable advice for all types of auditions.
Peisha McPhee’s performance work includes her one-woman show performed throughout the US and Europe, “Showboat”, “Man of La Mancha”, and “Fiddler On the Roof.” She is famous for her work as a vocal coach on Fox’s hit T.V show “American Idol.” She is the proud mother of season five’s “American Idol” runner-up Katherine McPhee, a BTP alum.
