Biography

ARIANNA ZUKERMAN, Soprano
Renowned for her pure, luminous, rich soprano, persuasive performances and dramatic ability, Arianna Zukerman is considered one of the premiere vocal artists of her generation. An artist in demand internationally for concert and opera performances, Ms. Zukerman is also an avid chamber musician, and regularly collaborates with some of today’s foremost chamber players. The Washington Post says “Arianna Zukerman possesses a remarkable voice that combines the range, warmth and facility of a Rossini mezzo with shimmering, round high notes and exquisite pianissimos that would make any soprano jealous.”

The 2017 –’18 season includes concerts with the Defiant Requiem Foundation singing the concert, Hours of Freedom and a staged reading of the new play Mass Appeal, 1943; the Mozart C Minor Mass with the Richmond Symphony, the Verdi Requiem with the True Concord Choir and Orchestra (AZ), Così fan tutte with the National Philharmonic, a concert for the Coalition for African Americans in the Performing Arts at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC and performances at the Wintergreen Music Festival in Wintergreen, VA and at the Crested Butte Music Festival in Colorado.

Ms. Zukerman is the featured soloist on the critically acclaimed, GRAMMY nominated 2013 Naxos recording of James Whitbourn’s oratorio, Annelies: the first major choral setting the Diary of Anne Frank. The Guardian (UK) praised her performance on the CD ¸ stating, “Arianna Zukerman sings with subdued beauty.” She sings the work often including notably, the New York City premiere of the work at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center in the Spring of 2014.
In addition to her performance schedule, Arianna Zukerman is the Chair of Voice and Advisor for Vocal Programming at the Wintergreen Music Festival and Academy in Wintergreen, VA.
