As an advocate for the pedagogy behind a versatile mechanism, my goal as a voice teacher is to help foster sustainable technique permitting the ability to be expressive emotionally and physically in any genre of singing.
Craig Juricka joined the Conservatory in 2021 and is a lecturer of voice in the musical theater and voice/opera programs.
Juricka, a Boston-based baritone, is an energetic vocal pedagogue and performer. Praised by Opera Today as an “engaging baritone,” his versatile performance career has brought him to concert, opera, and musical theater stages throughout the United States. An advocate for pedagogy behind a versatile mechanism, Juricka’s approach to performance is rooted in his cross-trained background as a singer. Comfortable teaching all genres, Juricka’s students range in age and skill levels. Aiming to create reliable and employable singers, his goal is to help students access their strengths and develop their weaknesses. Ultimately, this fosters sustainable technique, which allows the ability to be expressive emotionally and physically in any genre of singing.
Previously Juricka was featured with the Des Moines Metro Opera. Some of his notable opera credits include Pandolfe (Cendrillon), Eisenstein (Die Fledermaus), and Owen Hart (Dead Man Walking).
In the concert singing world, Juricka is a sought-after soloist and chorister. He performs regularly with the chorus of Odyssey Opera, and has most recently been featured as a soloist or chorister with the Boston Camerata, Handel and Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, Emmanuel Music, and the Henry Purcell Society. He maintains professional affiliations with the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), Early Music America, and is a current board member with the Boston Chapter of NATS.
Juricka holds an M.M. in Vocal Pedagogy from Boston Conservatory at Berklee and a B.M. in Vocal Performance with an Opera and Musical Theatre emphasis from Capital University. He maintains a private studio in Melrose, Massachusetts. Additionally, he serves on the voice faculty of the Walnut Hill School for the Arts.
