Praised for her “light, fleet soprano” and “soaring, diamantine high notes”, Canadian soprano Megan Chartrand feels equally at home singing early music, art song, chamber music and concert repertoire. Notable solo performances include Dalila in Handel's Samson with American Classical Orchestra and Mozart's Requiem with True Concord, both in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. Megan has also sung Bach's St. Matthew Passion, St. John Passion, and B Minor Mass with numerous ensembles; Mozart's Exsultate, jubilate with Tucson's St Andrew's Bach Society; and Kurt Weill's Seven Deadly Sins and Mahler's 4th Symphony at the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland. An avid ensemble singer, Megan has also sung with many of the highest level classical vocal ensembles in North America.
Abigail Haynes-Lennox, soprano, quoted as angelic and stylish in her interpretations of Bach and Mozart, is equally at home with genres ranging from early plainchant to 19th- century melodie to improvised avant-garde. Originally from Bartlett, Tennesseee, she began her vocal studies at Ann Arbor, Michigan, where after finishing her bachelors degree in vocal performance at the University of Michigan, she served as music director for the Wesley Foundation of First Methodist, performed with the Michigan Opera Theater under Stephen Lord, and was a frequent soloist appearing on premier recordings of contemporary works. In 2007 Lennox completed her master’s degree study in voice at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music where she studied under James Taylor, Ted Taylor, and Judith Malafronte.
