Current Season


Michele Kennedy

Praised by The San Francisco Chronicle as "a wonder to hear", soprano Michele Kennedy is a specialist in early classical and contemporary music. Michele has been lauded by The Washington Post as "a fine young soprano with a lovely voice" that is "so warm, powerful, and versatile - you have the sense that she could sing anything (Front Row Center, NYC)."

Michele's recent highlights include the role of Cupid in Purcell's King Arthur with American Bach Soloists, and appearances with American Classical Orchestra (Bach Cantatas), Baroque in the Fields (Vivaldi Gloria), Musica Nuova (Monteverdi's Il Ballo delle Ingrate), Parthenia Viols (Byrd consort songs), and REBEL Baroque Orchestra (works of Salamone Rossi). Michele has sung in premiere works with American Opera Projects, Center for Contemporary Opera, and Experiments in Opera, as well as a new song cycle with Tribeca New Music Festival. She most recently performed Handel's Messiah in NYC and Detroit, MI, and made her debut at Davies Symphony Hall as a featured soloist with the San Francisco Girls Chorus. Up next, she'll sing The Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 with Dark Horse Consort and NYC's Voices of Ascension, Handel and Vivaldi's Dixit Dominus settings with Crescendo Vocal Ensemble in Lakeville, CT, and the Bach Magnificat with The San Francisco Symphony Chorus.

A native of Oakland, California, Michele studies voice with Ruth Rainero and Marguerite Krull, completed her musical studies at Yale University and School of Music, and is an associate member of the voice faculty at Rutgers University. Please find more at www.michele-kennedy.com.
