Thursday, May 2, 2013

[Degree Recital: Abigail Levis, mezzo-soprano]

Named "Debut Artist of the Year" by the Joy in Singing Foundation, lyric mezzo-soprano Abigail Levis is emerging as one of the most exciting young singers of today. The Boston Musical Intelligencer praised her for her “dramatic style” and “high level of technical ability” in her performance of Israel in Egypt with the Handel and Haydn Society in Symphony Hall. She is currently a student in the Graduate Vocal Arts program at the Bard Conservatory where she studies with Edith Bers and Dawn Upshaw. As a professional singer, Ms. Levis has appeared as a soloist with the American Symphony Orchestra, Ars Lyrica Houston, and the New York Opera Exchange in addition to the Handel and Haydn Society. She is also the winner of several competitions, including the 2010 University of Houston Concerto Competition, the 2010 National Orpheus Vocal Competition, the 2011 Five Towns Music Competition in Long Island, and the 2011 Young Texas Artist competition.
