“The U.S.A.’s hottest baroque band.” –CLASSICAL MUSIC MAGAZINE (UK)

ERICA SCHULLER
soprano

Praised for her lively personality, abundant charm, and luscious vocalism (Chicago Tribune), soprano Erica Schuller is a versatile performer, bringing committed artistry to a broad musical repertory. Her particular affinity for Baroque repertoire has brought her increasing attention from some of the country’s finest Early Music ensembles. Upcoming engagements include roles with The Boston Early Music Festival and a concert appearance with The Haymarket Opera Company’s Summer Workshop.

This past season, Ms. Schuller performed leading and supporting operatic roles with The Boston Early Music Festival, The Haymarket Opera Company and Opera Siam. In Boston, Ms. Schuller performed the roles of La Fortuna and Damigella in the 2015 Festival centerpiece opera L’Incoronazione di Poppea, and was praised for bringing beauty and bearing to her roles (Boston Globe). As Oriana in The Haymarket Opera Company’s production of Handel’s Amadigi di Gaula, Chicago Classical Review praised “her warm, agile soprano, full of passion and depth.” She also created the roles of Joan Strasinsky and Princess in the world premiere of the newly composed opera The Snow Dragon by award winning novelist and composer Somtow Sucharitkul, and was described as “ethereal” by Broadway World Magazine. She reprised these roles in Thailand with Opera Siam. Ms. Schuller also made her debut performance with Great Lakes Baroque this season, under the direction of renowned harpsichordist Jory Vinikour. Additional performances include a recital of English Baroque lute songs with The Church of Beethoven, a presentation of Couperin’s Leçons de Ténèbres through St. Chrysostom’s Church Concert Series in Chicago, and engagements with Second City Musick and Bella Voce ensembles.
