Heidi comes from a
family of fourteen children devoted to music. Since the age of five she
has sung professionally with her family, touring around the country and
recording three record albums. At the age of thirteen she began her
career as a soloist for church and civic functions. When only fifteen
she was asked to become a member of the Quincy Symphony Chorus, a group
funded by the Illinois Arts Council in her hometown of Quincy,
Illinois. That same year she began to do extensive dance and theatrical
work leading to a BFA in Performance from Illinois Wesleyan University.
Since graduation, her career has spanned stage, radio, concert, and film
performances as both a singer and an actress. In her work as a
classical artist, she has performed at Carnegie Hall and has toured
extensively singing in China and Greece. Her recordings with the
composer Michael Hoppe recently were rewarded with a Grammy nomination
for best New Age Album for SOLACE. Their latest collaboration is
entitled REQIUEM and her upcoming solo album of Michael Hoppe’s
compositions will be entitled HEAVENSENT. Her blending of drama with
the passion of music makes her performances memorable. She is a student
of Grace de La Cruz.
When not on the stage, Heidi works with her husband, photographer
Timothy Fielding, as a business manager, darkroom expert, and gopher.
She is also actively involved with wildlife rescues – everything from a
baby hummingbird, a misplaced rattlesnake, or a lost baby possum. If
