Persian-American soprano, Raha Mirzadegan is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist based in New York. Her repertoire spans the medieval chant of Hildegard von Bingen to premiering new works by living composers. She was a member of the Maryland Opera Studio at the University of Maryland, where she received a Bachelor of Music. During her time at the university she studied with Gran Wilson, and was a chorister/soloist with the award-winning Chamber Singers, lead by Dr. Edward Maclary.
Raha is the founder and director of The Undercroft, a DC-based vocal ensemble dedicated to unearthing obscure works and premiering them for modern audiences. The group specializes in one-on-a-part renaissance polyphony.
This season, Raha will be performing with groups such as Clarion music society, Bridge Ensemble, Chamber Singers, and The Undercroft in venues along the East Coast.
