Singer Lynne Rothrock’s engaging mega-watt personality is as expansive as her remarkable knack for uncovering priceless, little-known musical masterpieces. Her savvy style with a time-honored classic is as warm and on-target as her easy and immediate connection with an audience of any demographic.
She has performed in musical theatre, opera, nightclubs and concert halls across the U.S., from Seattle Light Opera to Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, from Birdland in NYC to Chicago’s Davenports Cabaret and Hell’s Kitchen and Crooner’s in Minneapolis.
A graduate of Luther College and Western Michigan University, Lynne’s national reputation as a vocal and choral clinician keeps her in demand on college campuses and music festivals around the U.S. and internationally. Her unique workshops in solo song performance and interpretation help singers dig into the lyric and bring the music to life.
Lynne’s musical partnership with her late husband, IA Blues and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Ron DeWitte, thrilled audiences in their home base of Iowa, major venues around the Midwest and around the world as headline entertainers on cruise ships. Since Ron’s death in 2018, Lynne is forging ahead - returning to her roots in cabaret and musical theatre. She is a graduate of the International Cabaret Conference at Yale University and serves on the faculty of Michael Feinstein’s Great American Songbook Foundation and Academy.
Lynne is as solid and nurturing as the Midwest soil that surrounds her Iowa hometown. She has a knack for making everyone around her break into smiles - whether gracing a stage with her clear, beautiful vocals and hilarious stage banter or drawing out the very best artistry from other singers. Invite Lynne to the party and expect to have a heck of a good time.
