VOICE

St_edited_edited_edited.jpg

With a versatile voice and musical sensibility, Audrey enjoys singing in a range of styles, from Middle Eastern song and Byzantine chant to American gospel, her own folk songs, and the folk songs she encountered traveling in southern Namibia. To this point, Audrey has devoted her performing life primarily to Western Renaissance, Baroque and Classical religious music. 


Audrey has sung as a soprano soloist in worship and concert with ensembles including Gamut Bach Ensemble at the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, the Christopher Street Collegium, the Choir of St. Ignatius of Antioch, St. Peter's Bach Collegium in New York, the Westchester Oratorio Society, the Schola Cantorum at St. Agnes' Church in NYC, the Schola at First Lutheran Church in Boston, Canto Armonico (Boston), and the Harvard University Choir and Choral Fellows. She has performed with conductors including Masaaki Suzuki, Simon Carrington, David Hill, Koji Otsuki, Gwendolyn Toth, and Edward Elwyn Jones. In 2020-21, Audrey sang as a Byzantine chanter and chorister at the Orthros and Divine Liturgy services at St. Michael's Orthodox Church in Geneva, NY.


While Audrey sings primarily for live worship, she has performed and recorded numerous works of early and contemporary sacred music in concert and studio. She has recorded Renaissance motets and original works in ongoing collaboration with fellow composer and singer Erik-Peter Mortensen since 2017. She recently sang Bach's well-loved soprano solo cantata BWV 51, "Jauchzett Gott in Allen Landen" with Gamut Bach Ensemble, directed by Bach specialist Koji Otsuki, in a concert of Bach cantatas offered through the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society. 2019 Audrey sang the role of Guardian Angel in a historic performance of Emilio de' Cavalieri's sacred opera, "Rappresentatione di anima e di corpo" directed by Balint Karosi at St. Peter's Church in NYC. In 2017 Audrey toured northern Germany as a soloist and chorister with First Lutheran's resident early music ensemble, Canto Armonico, founded and led by Cheryl Ryder. In 2016 and 2018 Audrey was a featured soloist in concerts at Grace Farms in New Canaan, CT, in collaboration with Daniel Moody, Caroline Shaw, Cindertalk, and Gallim Dance.


A graduate of the Yale Divinity School and Institute of Sacred Music in 2016, Audrey studied voice and music previously at the American Bach Soloists Summer Academy and at Harvard College. Her tremendous voice teachers and coaches have included Frank Kelley, Matt Anderson, Judith Malafronte, Sherezade Panthaki, Dann Coakwell, Anat Keidar, Suzanne Murphy, and Daniel Moody. In 2020 she also had the joy of studying Arabic singing with Shelley Thomas. Finally, she is ever indebted to the brilliant conductor and organist Edward Elwyn Jones, who introduced her to sacred and early music in her college years.
