Dennise Nichole Dittman, is an American classical-crossover soprano.
In her spare time, performing at retirement communities has brought her great joy! After serenading the residents, it's always special to Miss Dittman, to visit and share quality time with these beautiful people. To hear their stories and let them know they're not alone. To spread a little sunshine to them even for just a moment fulfills her life. "There is nothing more touching to know that you brightened someone's day, seeing the twinkle in their eye, and reminding them of good memories with a special song. Letting each and every one of them know they are important."
In 1996, she made a debut performance as "The Reverend Mother" in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The Sound of Music." Which has been her favorite musical since childhood. She memorized the entire score at an early age, and has fond memories of riding her bicycle through the neighborhood while singing, "THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF MUSIC."The neighbors noticed right away that it wasn't your average nursery rhyme and she would grow up to be a singer. In 2004, She made her debut role as "The Mother"in "Ahmal and The Night Visitors" by Gian Carlo Menotti. Dennise studied the
lirico-spinto/dramatic soprano repertoire and has participated in The Metropolitan Opera Auditions in Cincinnati, Ohio, Lexington, Kentucky, and Boston Massachusetts. While spending the past 16 years pursuing a career in Opera, Dennise has given over 15-20 recitals and opera concerts. She has sung in many languages including, English, Latin, Italian, German, French, and Czech. With a diverse love of music, she enjoys singing opera arias, lieder, hymns ,musical theatre, country, gospel, standards, jazz, ballads, as well as popular music!
As an Independent Artist... In May of 2015, Dennise has released a brand new CD. With 10 original songs that are carefully handpicked (and pitched) to her by friends and collegues in the Country Christian Gospel world. "My prayer is that I can bless you through these songs of faith and hope, touch your heart, and bring your closer to Jesus",says Miss Dittman. Dennise performed in 4 showcases at The Gospel Music Fan Fair, located in Somerset, Kentucky and met many new fans and Christian friends to last a lifetime. In August, she plans to attend and perform at the ICGMA (International Country Gopel Music Association) and looks forward to meeting new fans from across the United States.
"It's always a blessing to meet people with a similar heart",says Dittman.
Miss Dittman's wish is to remain humble and down to earth by donating her time to many worthy causes around the community and by pitching in to give benefit concerts for the homeless and respite centers in urban Cincinnati. Also supporting local food pantries and giving concerts (in lieu of selling tickets, asking for donations) to help those in need. With an open heart she doesn't hesitate to lend a hand any way she can, says one local volunteer at the pantry...
"You can tell she is sincere and truly wants to make a difference in lives of others."
Dennise has an emotional attachment to animals, and reaches out into her community
