AARIANNA B. LONGINO
About the artist:
Lyric soprano Aarianna B. Longino received her bachelor’s degree from Prairie View A&M University and her master’s degree from The University of Texas at Austin Butler School of Music, where she also began work on her Artist Diploma. She joined the HGO Chorus in 2019, singing in Aida and the world premiere of Marian’s Song. She made her HGO mainstage debut as Mama in alternate cast performances of The Snowy Day. Her recent performances include Suor Angelica in Suor Angelica, Erste Dame in The Magic Flute, Female Chorus in The Rape of Lucretia, Mother in The Women, Larina in Eugene Onegin, and Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte, for which she was recognized by the Austin Chronicle for “conveying the anguish and steadfastness in the arias.” She was scheduled to make her debut with the Houston Symphony, but that was canceled due to COVID-19.
