Moscow-born soprano Yulia Van Doren (Bird with Golden Plumage, A Bird in Your Ear), described as having “the perfect baroque voice” (Seattle Times), was awarded top prizes in the International Bach Vocal Competition and American Bach Soloists’ Competition, and she recorded the role of Ceres for the Boston Early Music Festival (BEMF) Grammy-nominated recording of Thésée, while still an undergraduate at the New England Conservatory. In 2007 she made her debut at Carnegie Hall and Tanglewood; her critically-acclaimed operatic debut as Poppea with the Early Music Guild of Seattle; and with BEMF, where her aria in the Lully opera Psyché was acclaimed as a highlight by numerous international critics. During the 2007–08 season, she appears in concert with groups including Cincinnati May Festival, Seattle Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Portland Baroque Orchestra, and reprises the role of Belinda on tour with Mark Morris Dance Group’s Dido and Aeneas. This summer, she will be a member of the Santa Fe Opera apprentice program.
