NOLA RICHARDSON

NOLA RICHARDSON

Soprano Nola Richardson is rapidly making her mark as an "especially impressive" (The New York Times) young soloist and has been praised by the Washington Post for her "astonishing balance and accuracy,” “crystalline diction” and “natural-sounding ease.” Her wide repertoire spans from music of the medieval period to several world premieres, and she performs frequently throughout the United States. Some highlights of her current and past seasons include her major symphony debut as the featured soloist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra performing BWV 51 and Scarlatti's Su le Sponde del Tebro in the program "All Baroque”; an appearance as a soloist with the Boston Pops under Keith Lockhart in "Simply Sondheim"; Handel's Messiah with theColorado Symphony; a tour to Russia, Estonia, and Latvia performing the soprano solos in Arvo Pärt's Passio with the Yale Schola Cantorum under conductor David Hill; the premiere of Michael Gandolfi’s Carroll in Numberland (alongside soprano Dawn Upshaw) at Tanglewood; and the First Lady in Clarion Music Society’s production of Die Zauberflöte.
