PENITENZA/MARIA SANTISSIMA | Molly Netter

"Canadian-American soprano Molly Netter enlivens complex and beautiful music, both old and new, with a voice described as “crisp and clear, white yet warm” (Seen and Heard International).

Described as having “exquisite poise” (NY Times) and  “[embuing] every word of the text with signification” (The Examiner), she has performed as a soloist with the GRAMMY-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street, the Clarion Music Society, the Smithsonian Chamber Orchestra, the Albany Symphony, Heartbeat Opera, Yale Opera, and Experiments in Opera, as well as with Juilliard415 at Lincoln Center, touring internationally in Japan, Singapore and Burma under Masaaki Suzuki and with the Triplepoint contemporary/jazz ensemble.  This season includes solo debuts with Apollo's Fire, the Boston Early Music Festival, and New York Baroque Incorporated.

Ms. Netter holds an ad hoc Bachelor of Music degree in composition and contemporary voice from Oberlin Conservatory and a Master’s degree in early music voice and oratorio from the Yale Institute of Sacred Music where she studied with James Taylor. Between degrees, she taught English in Kyoto, Japan.”
