About Inès Nassara
Strathmore Artist in Residence Class of 2017
Inès Nassara was a Maryland girl singing throughout her childhood — even during the track meets, basketball games and tennis practices. Once her parents caught on to the fact that she dreamt of being a pop icon and not a mediocre athlete, she then started to invest in singing and dance more seriously. She sang throughout grade school and decided to continue singing through university studying classical and jazz voice along with a Sociology/Anthropology major at Towson University. While attending Towson she would take spring semesters off to do regional shows in DC at Keegan Theatre, Signature Theatre, Ford's Theatre to name a few.
Inès is a Helen Hayes award winning actor who got her start in the thriving theatre community of DC and is now making her mark in New York City. After her first full year living in NYC she sang backup for AJ Mitchell for the VMA’s. She soon sang backup for Cynthia Erivo on The Today Show promoting her Emmy Nomination for Harriet. Inès Nassara can be heard as the vocalist for Kate Spade’s Summer Campaign Launch singing Judy Garland’s “Get Happy”. Nassara was using New York City as a platform for music and continues to write, sing and collaborate. With that being said, she has been successfully working her way back into the theatre world in New York City and is very excited to see what is to come!
Nassara is a musician, singer-songwriter, theatre actor, session singer and producer who happens to still be obsessed with tennis. She is in a female singer-songwriter duo called HEROINE. Their music is available on all streaming platforms. Her college duo called Lush Life had successful radio play in Baltimore, MD. You can find their music on bandcamp. Ines will be releasing her solo debut single “Working On It’ at the start of 2022! Right before the release, Inès will be in a musical in DC — stay tuned for that announcement!
