Deborah Voigt attended the California State University at Fullerton, later taking part in San Francisco Opera's Merola Program for young artists. She first attracted international attention when she won first prize at the Luciano Pavarotti Voice Competition in 1988, and the gold medal at Moscow's Tchaikovsky International Competition in 1990. Following more than a decade of exceptional achievement, Ms. Voigt was recognized by the French government in March 2002, when she was decorated with the prestigious "Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres," France's top literary and artistic award. Shortly afterward she was named Musical America's 2003 Vocalist of the Year.
