Chanel Wood’s (Nightingale, A Bird in Your Ear) “gleaming soprano” (The New Yorker) has been heard in an increasingly diverse repertory. She has appeared with the Boston Pops in both their holiday concerts and “A Tribute to Stephen Sondheim.” In 2007 she made her Carnegie Hall debut singing “Sun, Moon and Star,” commissioned in conjunction with the 2007 Carnegie Hall Osvaldo Golijov / Dawn Upshaw Workshop for Composers and Singers. On the opera stage, she has been heard as Die Erste Gespielen in Bard Summerscape’s Der Zwerg; as Helene in Hindemith’s There and Back at Tanglewood Music Center; and as Die Schleppträgerin in a concert version of Elektra, conducted by Maestro James Levine. She has collaborated on several chamber pieces, including Bachianas Brasilieras No. 5, Chansons madécasses, and The Wanderer and His Shadow, a new composition by Lawrence Kramer. Upcoming engagements include Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with the American Symphony Orchestra and Columbia Festival Orchestra.
