Ms. Vroman, an Adams, NY native, starred for several years on Broadway as Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera.  As Christine, she garnered Theatre Critic’s awards for the role in a record breaking run in San Francisco, and did a return engagement at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. She is a frequent guest soloist with Theatre and Opera companies as well as Orchestras including San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, Florida, Santa Barbara, Hong Kong, Cleveland, Nashville, Pacific, Utah, Dallas, the Boston Pops (Keith Lockhart), and Peter Nero and the Philly Pops. Miss Vroman made her debut at The Hollywood Bowl in Disney's 75th celebration, singing and dancing with legend Dick Van Dyke in a medley from Mary Poppins, (John Mauceri, conductor).
 
She guest starred with SONY artist Greek tenor Mario Frangoulis in his NYC debut concert at City Center; and has performed many times the New York Festival of Song (NYFOS), including a tribute to Broadway director Harold Prince. Miss Vroman has sung in concert with conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, composer Stephen Schwartz, Organist David Higgs, and the Empire Brass Quintet. Her solo CD Broadway Classic features Metropolitan Opera Mezzo-Soprano Stephanie Blythe and 47 of San Francisco's finest orchestral players. Lisa had the honor of singing at the Profiles in Courage Award dinner in Boston at the JFK Library, as a guest of the Kennedy family. She has also sung on separate occasions for Queen Elizabeth, former President Bill Clinton, and former Vice President Al Gore.
 
Ms Vroman promises a thoroughly entertaining show presenting Broadway Classics as well as American Songbook pieces. Joining her on stage will be two gifted pianists, Mr. Peter Woolschlager and Ms. Toni Zygadlo. Included in the show will be promising local high school vocalists who will have participated in a Master Class with Ms. Vroman and won a Broadway Idol Competition on Friday, April 19th @ Lowville Academy and Central School at 7:00pm. Tickets for the Broadway Idol Competition can be purchased at the door for $5.00.
