Welcome!

I'm Nicole Warner and I'm a classically trained mezzo-soprano. I'm an active soloist and small ensemble singer and I've sung everything from Bach's b minor Mass to Mozart's Requiem and from house concerts to funerals.

I live in my chosen home of Milwaukee, WI. My "day job" is running GermanWithNicole.com, where I teach German and coach German Diction, and the combination of music and language is really pretty awesome.

Enough about me, let's get to some fun facts.

Let's Call it What it is: STE_M

We have a lot of STE_M culture - science, technology, engineering and math.

STE_M culture allows us to be right or wrong. To hypothesize, test, and review.

It's possible to seemingly perfect these things.

It's possible to compete because these things are perfectly measurable.

Measure something that's 5 inches in diameter, use mathematical formulas, build a robot, determine how to make dirty water clean again.

It's HOT right now. STE_M has been hot for years. Go on LinkedIn, any organization…

Culture vs. Entertainment

Culture vs Entertainment

One of the main observations I've had since I moved back to the U.S. (from Germany in 2008) is this:

We live in a culturally poor culture.

There are a lot of bombastic experiences to be had here, you can go on a show that's all about "ninja warriors." You can go on national/international television and be lambasted for singing out of tune. You can be 8 years old and be called the next big opera singer.

(Aside: *facepalm*)

That isn't culture, though. It may include expectations, backgroun…

Who are Culture Workers?

Who are Culture Workers

A couple of months ago my Virtual Assistant and I were discussing how under-funded the arts are in both our countries. (She lives in another country.)

We don't build and maintain the vehicles and roads which deliver cogs to businesses and individuals.
