Sherna Armstrong was born in Little Rock, AR, but she moved to Texas as quickly as she could, where she currently works as a soloist, section leader, Music Director, Stage Director, and producer of a recital series entitled “My Soul Music”, in the Dallas Metroplex. She enjoys an extensive performance career which requires that she sing opera, musical theater, gospel, and jazz. She also has a R&B Jazz Band, Sherna Armstrong Band. Her recent solo project, also entitled, “My Soul Music”, reflects her unique ability to perform a diverse palette of music equally well. She is also a Professor of Voice at Navarro College, and teaches English at SMU and at Richland Community College. She is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and maintains a private Voice and Piano studio.
Recent roles include Alice, in "Big River", Mistress of the Novices in “Suor Angelica” (she was also Stage Director), one of the three divas in "The Three Divas", the Baroness in "Grand Duke", Lady Jane in "Patience", and Anna in "Porgy and Bess" (She also covered the role of Serena and was invited to tour South Africa with the cast). Recent performances include guest soloist at the Garland Mayor's Inaugaral Gala, the Professional Football Players Mother’s Association Fashion Show and Fundraiser (hosted by Angelique Tégé and Michael Irvin), the City of Garland’s Mosaic Festival, and the Mu Phi Epsilon’s Library Recital Series.
