Soprano Michele Kennedy is a versatile specialist in early classical and contemporary repertoire. Praised by The Washington Post as a "fine young soprano" with "a lovely voice...that is well controlled and agreeably warm,” Michele has appeared in concert recently at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Folger Shakespeare Library, Salzburg Festival, and Washington National Cathedral. Her repertory ranges from Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music to contemporary art song and chamber opera. She has been featured as a soloist in the Bach B Minor Mass, Charpentier Te Deum, Handel Messiah, Mozart C Minor Mass, Requiem and Coronation Mass, and with Holy Trinity Bach Vespers Series, REBEL Baroque Orchestra, and New York Baroque Soloists. Michele's contemporary projects include recent premieres with American Opera Projects, Experiments in Opera, Harlem Stage Opera, Musica Nuova, and Tribeca New Music Festival. Equally at home with ensemble singing, Michele performs regularly with Pomerium, The Western Wind and The Cathedral Church Choir of Saint John the Divine, and has sung with Antioch Chamber Ensemble, Equal Voices, Tiffany Consort, Trinity Church Wall Street Choir, Vox Vocal Ensemble, and Voices of Ascension.
