 Phoebe Madden looks like a runner. Indeed, she does like to run and workout. But that’s only because it helps strengthen her body for what she truly loves: singing.

The petite, girlish Madden, who lives in Cowesett, can belt out a Broadway tune while dancing, or sing a lament at almost a whisper while making it all seem effortless. On September 4, she will perform three pieces on the program with the Rhode Island Philharmonic during the annual Summer’s End concert at Eldredge Field.

“The philharmonic heard the CD that I recorded last spring,” Madden said. “The Summer Arts Festival Organization board came to my students’ concert at Christmastime last year, and they heard the CD, too. So it came together for the Summer’s End concert.”

Madden has performed off-Broadway, in regional and stock theater, and has toured nationally. Last spring, she recorded her first CD. She also often performs at area churches – once per month at East Greenwich’s First Lutheran Church, as barter for teaching space. The parish at St. Gregory the Great in Warwick gets to hear her regularly, and has sung at the local Methodist and Baptist churches.

“This is really a peak time,” said the singer. “I’m looking forward to the future, but I also know that this is a special moment in my life, my journey.”

Lyme disease, diabetes

But it hasn’t always been this good for Madden. She is still fighting the effects of Lyme disease, which she contracted three years ago.
