Her recent performance highlights include her debut at Carnegie Hall in the world-premiere of Doot by Ryan Carter, followed by her debut with the American Symphony Orchestra at Bard SummerScape, playing the role of the Zweite Zofe in Zemlinsky’s Der Zwerg. Other appearances include the CBC Radio Classical Encounters Series, the main stage at the National Art Centre with Opera Lyra Ottawa, and a solo recital at the National Gallery of Canada. A graduate of the University of Toronto and the University of Ottawa, Stewart has received prizes that include a Canada Council for the Arts grant; Louis Quilico award; Brian Law Competition; Académie International d’été de Nice competition; and Canadian Music Competition. She has sung throughout Canada, and in Italy, France and Austria. Upcoming performances include her Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra debut this spring.
