She has been an apprentice at Opera New Jersey, where she covered the role of Clorinda/La Cenerentola and at Opera Cedar Rapids, as Fiordiligi/Cosi fan tutte. A strong supporter of opera in unconventional venues and genres, she is a company member with Lingerie Lyrique, a Chicago-based opera/burlesque fusion company, with Opera on Tap, and with VOX 3, a vocal music collective celebrating opera, oratorio, and art song. This upcoming season Mary sings Lucy/The Telephone and The Girl/Hello Out There, and, in July, will co-produce a small human being.
