Soprano Rosa Lamoreaux is known for her incandescent presence, “a wonderfully rich timbre and an amazingly flexible voice” (Washington Post). She is sought after for her beautifully styled readings of repertoire from Hildegard von Bingen to Shostakovich and has a busy international career.
After winning the Handel Aria Competition at the Aspen Music Festival, her career has taken her to Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and in Europe to the BBC Proms in Royal Albert Hall, Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the Reingau Music Festival, and La Fenice Chamber Music Festival. Ms. Lamoreaux is the Artistic Director of the National Gallery of Art Vocal Ensemble, designing and performing concerts for specific exhibits at the National Gallery of Art.
She is a frequent soloist with the Bethlehem Bach Festival, Carmel Bach Festival, Folger Consort, MusicaAperta, ArcoVoce, and Hesperus, and is featured on many recordings including The Bach Choir of Bethlehem’s most recent recording—Bach’s Magnificat and Vivaldi’s Gloria. Recent and upcoming performances include Handel’s Gloria at Grace Cathedral San Francisco, Acis and Galatea with Opera Lafayette, Shostakovich 14th Symphony with the Northwest Chamber Orchestra, Saint John Passion of Bach at Washington National Cathedral, Barber’s Knoxville Summer of 1915, Handel’s Messiah with the National Philharmonic Orchestra, concerts in Italy with the Carmel Bach Festival Chamber Musicians, a tour with MusicaAperta performing repertoire from Perotin to Golijov, and a review of the music of Ivor Novello in London.
