Fanny Lora is a classical singer and certified Alexander Technique Teacher. She specializes in Spanish/Latino repertoire and her genuine interpretations successfully bring the repertoire to life for the audience. Fanny enjoys singing in private and public events, opera and recitals. The Alexander Technique has been crucial in deepening Fannys understanding of the voice, and as a result, it has given her a more holistic approach to singing and teaching.

Fanny's studio is located in Holliston, MA.
