Praised for her “warm, colorful mezzo” by Opera News, Sophie Michaux has become one of Boston’s most versatile and compelling vocalists. Born in London and raised in the French Alps, Sophie’s unique background informs her artistic identity, making her feel at home in an eclectic span of repertoire ranging from grand opera to French cabaret songs. Sophie’s recent engagements include a solo recital of Barbara Strozzi’s music at the Fondazione Cini in Venice, in Annecy (France), and in Boston. A consummate singing actor, Sophie recently appeared as Ceres in the Boston Early Music Festival’s production of Michel de Lalande’s Les Fontaines de Versailles. With Lorelei Ensemble, Boston’s groundbreaking professional women’s vocal ensemble, she has been a featured soloist in numerous works from Renaissance polyphony to Björk. Sophie belongs to Beyond Artists, a coalition of artists who donate a percentage of their concert fees to organizations they care about. Through this performance, she supports The Ocean Clean Up.
