Vocal artist, performance-maker, teacher

Soprano activist

Mary Benefiel uses her voice to provoke change, to create pointed and quirky performance pieces and to teach the world to sing.

Sometimes poetic, always imaginative, Mary’s artistry lies in her transformative, multidisciplinary approach to her work.

Mary’s Performances & Poetry

Performance art projects, poetry and writing are all strings to Mary’s bow. Her works are rich in imagery, her performances multi-layered with voice and movement. Her practice is to find the music that is alive in the moment, by connecting with her inner voice and the theme of the work.

Singing classes

The only thing better than singing is more singing.”
Ella Fitzgerald

Mary offers chanting classes, singing workshops and one-to-one sessions. In any class you are invited to start from where you are and to ‘tune-in’ to your voice. Mary’s role is to offer ways for the sound to flow and for you to feel more confident, clear and authentic. These classes are for anyone from novices to professionals.
