Scottish-American soprano Claire Galloway’s theatricality covers the gamut of “palpable pain” and “splendid, funny moments” (B.I.T.R.). This season she is a featured artist with Baltimore Musicales, co-leads and performs in 3340 Recital's Somatic Song Institute, presents recitals around the East Coast, and will premiere two roles in Arnold Saltzman’s Geniza: Hidden Fragments with Chesapeake Symphony in October. 


A 2022 Brown Loranger Fellow at Songfest, Fellow at the Nordic Song Festival in Trollhättan, Sweden, and 2021 Fellow at the Ravinia Steans Music Institute, Ms. Galloway is known for her innovative recital programing with a special interest in French and Nordic repertoire as well as commissioning new works for voice and chamber ensemble. 

Having performed with Lidal North in Oslo, Saltworks Opera, Baltimore Concert Opera, Savannah Opera, Bel Cantanti Opera, and Stillpointe Theatre, she has presented operatic roles by Mozart, Poulenc, Massenet, and Bernstein, as well as premiered roles in works by Steven Crino, Jonathan Dove, and Frances Pollock.

Upcoming Performances


DC Theatre Scene

Susan Galbraith

Claire Galloway Weber as Dinah, the wife, delivered some beautiful arias. I was deeply moved by the dream she relates to her psychiatrist on the couch, in this production inventively draped as a chanteuse over the top of the piano. 'I was standing in the garden' was filled with the inner longing of this woman. I also liked the risks she took in the wild 'Trouble in Tahiti'...She rips into the song with abandon, moving from comic dismissal of movie musicals as they were written to getting caught up in the plot of one then tearing with fury into the exotic singing-dancing island girls 'ahaahhaahha' complete with phony hula dancing.

Baltimore Independent Theatre Review

Dinah, played by Claire Galloway Weber, is also an outstanding songbird soprano who holds her own against Tomaszewski. Her pain is palpable, and her courage to try and find help seems a thin veiled reflection on deflection. She has her own splendid funny moment performing 'Island Magic,' while flouncing between a disgusted movie patron and a back up dancer for the Polynesian Dance Troupe.

Theatre Bloom

Mike Zellhofer

Galloway Weber's clear, dulcet voice draws you into her struggle between having the perfect looking suburban home and what appears to be an alluring marriage, and the desire for a relationship with the man she loves. She conveys this perfectly in her scene with her psychiatrist and as she recounts her viewing of the South Sea romance Trouble in Tahiti.
