Cantabile soprano Ursula Wade was born in Rustenburg, South Africa and came to the U.S. at the age of nine months. She spent her early years in Dime Box, Texas, so named for the dime you placed with your letter in the mail box for delivery. The family moved to Colorado and Ursula attended Boulder High School and went on to receive her BSN from the Medical Center in Denver.
She recalls that her paternal grandfather wrote beautiful poetry to the woman who would become her grandmother from the front during World War I.
Ursula enjoys cross-country skiing, motorcycling, bicycling, gardening, folk dancing, and snorkeling, which she discovered on a trip to Akumal, Mexico.
Ursula grew up playing the violin and has sung since she can remember. One her favorite vocal pieces is the oboe/soprano duet from Vivaldi’s Gloria. This coming season will be her second with Cantabile.
