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 solo recitals of Barbara Strozzi’s music at Venice’s Fondazione Cini and in Boston, and she won second place at the 2021 Handel Aria Competition in Madison, WI. A consummate singing actor, she appeared as Ceres in the Boston Early Music Festival’s production of Michel de Lalande’s Les Fontaines de Versailles, garnering acclaim from the Boston Musical Intelligencer for her “astonishing range and flexibility.” Sophie is a core member of Lorelei Ensemble, Boston’s groundbreaking women’s vocal ensemble, in which she has been a featured soloist in works from Renaissance polyphony to Björk, and she collaborates regularly with BEMF, A Far Cry, Blue Heron, and other ensembles. Sophie belongs to Beyond Artists, a coalition of artists who donate a percentage of their concert fees to organizations they care about. Through her performances she supports The Ocean Clean Up.
