Described as “particularly impressive” and “silver-voiced” (The Arts Fuse) in her recent debut with the Boston Symphony, soprano Alexandra Smither is making a name for herself in the worlds of both old and new music. With a vocal technique described as “beautiful, elegant, and masterfully manipulated” (Schmopera), she was named one of Canadian Broadcasting Co’s 2017 “30 Young Hot Classical Musicians Under 30”. Grand prize winner at the 2017 Eckhardt-Gramatée Competition, earning both first prize and the prize for best performance of the commissioned work, Nicole Lizee’s “Malfunctionlieder”, Ms. Smither has been making a name for herself in the worlds of old and new music. She made her debut with Houston Grand Opera in the Tom Cipullo’s “Glory Denied”, later returning as Diana in “Cruzar la cara de la luna”. As a soprano fellow at the Tanglewood Music Festival (2017/2018), she performed in concerts alongside Emmanuel Ax, Thomas Ades, Stefan Asbury, and the TMC Orchestra. She has performed with numerous organizations including the Against the Grain Theatre, Wyoming Symphony, the Baryshnikov Arts Center, the Banff Centre, Ars Lyrica, BARE Opera, and many more.
