“The Millbrook Independent” recently praised Addie Rose Forstman for her “excellent French” and for singing “with polish and real emotion” after her performance of works by Susan Botti at Music Alive!, a concert series at Bard College in New York. In May 2017 she was a finalist in the Advanced University Division of the Classical Singer Competition held in Chicago.

In addition to performing and pursuing her Master’s degree in the Bard College Conservatory’s Graduate Vocal Arts Program, Addie Rose maintains a private vocal studio through the Paul Effman Music School in Poughkeepsie, New York.
