WORLD RENOWNED SINGER MARNI NIXON
TO RECEIVE DISTINGUISHED ARTIST AWARD

New York City (September 19, 2008) - Jackie Presti, Program Director of The Singer Symposium, a one-day educational conference dedicated to the artistry of singing, announced today that world renowned American soprano Marni Nixon will be the recipient of the Distinguished Artist Award at this fall’s conference on Saturday, October 25th.

Often referred to as the “Voice of Hollywood,” Marni Nixon was the singing voice for many of film’s leading ladies, including Debora Kerr in The King and I, Natalie Wood in West Side Story, and Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady. Nixon received several awards and accolades throughout her prestigious career, including four Emmy Awards for Best Actress, two GRAMMY nominations, and two Gold Records. In addition to scores of film and TV credits, Marni Nixon’s career includes opera and symphony engagements, Broadway, Off-Broadway, and regional theatre, and she just completed the 2008 national tour of Cameron MacIntosh’s My Fair Lady. Her autobiography is entitled I Could have Sung All Night.

“The Singer Symposium is about every aspect of singing,“ explains Jackie Presti. “Marni Nixon epitomizes what it means to be a ‘working singer.’ She has covered almost every musical genre possible, worked with most of the musical legends of our time, and maintains an active career today. I can assure you, it will be a moving moment when we honor her.”

“How nice for the Symposium to do this,” said Nixon. “It is so meaningful to be recognized by your peers in this way.”

The Singer Symposium is a specialized one-day comprehensive educational conference dedicated to the artistry of singing. Designed for singers of all styles and levels, it is organized and presented by singers, for singers.  Attendees will meet and learn from professional singers, as well as experts in the field of singing, who will share current practical knowledge you needed to be successful as a singer today.
