In addition to performing with The Santa Fe Symphony Chorus, Mary Fellman is an active member of the Sangre de Cristo Chorale and in her church choir, Trinity-on-the-Hill in Los Alamos. She has performed in several choral concerts with The Symphony Chorus, including Handel’s Messiah, Brahms’ Requiem and various Choral Masterworks programs.  

Mary has performed with the National Philharmonic Chorale (Rockville, MD), the Palouse Choral Society (Moscow, ID), and the Whitman College Chorale (Walla Walla, WA). 

Mary grew up in Moscow, Idaho, before attending college in Walla Walla, Washington, and grad school in Ithaca, New York. She holds a BA in ancient history from Whitman College and an MA from Cornell University in the same field. She is trained as a pianist and organist, but as she admits, she only auditioned for her college chorale as a solidarity exercise with a friend. She was greatly surprised when she got in, but joining the group sparked a love of choral singing, a passion she has pursued ever since.  

She moved to Los Alamos in 2013 when her husband received a post-doc at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Mary was a contestant on the popular TV show, Jeopardy, and she takes pride in fooling people into thinking she was a music major.  She loves dogs and keeps busy with her two adorable New Mexican mutts, Gozer the Gozerian and Rando Calrissian.
