Loveland Opera’s Hoch hits the right notes
As founder and executive director of Loveland Opera Theatre, Hoch spearheads one of Northern Colorado’s top opera companies – and taking on all the responsibilities that come with it. From accounting and budgeting to auditioning artists to stage direction and conducting, Hoch does it all.
The Denver native honed her talents at some of the most prestigious music schools in the country, earning her bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from the Eastman School of Music, and a master’s from the Manhattan School of Music.
Hoch continued her musical studies at University of Northern Colorado, earning a doctorate.
Meantime, she was performing one of the most challenging soprano roles ever written with opera companies around the country and internationally. In the process, she established a reputation for artistic excellence extending far beyond her home state.
