Soprano Rosa Lamoreaux, acclaimed for her "scrupulous musicianship...gorgeous sound and stylistic acuity" [The Washington Post], is engaged in an international career of broad scope, including solo recitals, chamber music, opera, and orchestral performances at major concert venues: Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Strathmore Hall, and the Washington National Cathedral, among others. Her concert tours abroad have included performances in Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Peru, and Japan.

Highly-praised as a Bach soloist, Ms. Lamoreaux is featured regularly at the Bethlehem and Carmel Bach Festivals, and she appears frequently with such foremost choral groups as the Washington Bach Consort, the Cathedral Choral Society, the National Philharmonic Chorale, and Choral Arts of Washington. Her orchestral credits include the Atlanta, Dallas, and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestras. Greatly in demand as a chamber music performer, she sings with the Folger Consort, Chatham Baroque, ArcoVoce, the Four Nations Ensemble, Hesperus, and Musica Aperta.

Ms. Lamoreaux is Artistic Director of the National Gallery of Art Vocal Ensemble. Her art museum performance venues also include the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cloisters, the Smithsonian, the Corcoran Gallery, and the Phillips Collection. She has recently received her seventh Washington Area Music Association WAMMIE award as Best Classical Vocalist.
