Simone Osborne, soprano
In recital with Anne Larlee, piano
"Make no mistake, Simone is half athlete and half artist—which is what you need to be if you want to be an opera star. There’s no question about her big talent."
Canadian soprano Simone Osborne has been hailed as “a joy to hear” (Los Angeles Times) with “a sweet and clear sound, sensitive phrasing and gleaming sustained high notes” (New York Times). Ms. Osborne was one of the youngest winners of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and was a member of the Canadian Opera Company Studio Ensemble. She is one of Canada’s most sought after sopranos. She describes herself as a “young Canadian soprano traveling the world to sing high notes.” Born in BC, Osborne is a rising star who has her whole career ahead of her.
Simone will be joined on stage by Canadian pianist Anne Larlee. Their program will include songs of Mozart, Shumann, and award-winning Canadian composer Matthew Emery.
