ABOUT THE ARTIST
A force of nature.
Praised for her honest and compelling stage presence, Bethany's operatic performances include: Romilda from Handel's Serse, Micaëla, Pamina, Fiordiligi, and Dido. Bethany has a special interest in contemporary and Romantic-era art song and maintains an active recital schedule collaborating with colleagues in addition to presenting works for unaccompanied voice. Currently, Bethany is preparing a recital of Messiaen’s epic song-cycle Harawi.
Bethany is a native of Newfoundland, but she spent her childhood in the southern United States. After completing her Bachelor and Masters in Music at Memorial University in St John’s, Newfoundland, Bethany taught and performed for two years before she began her DMA in Voice Performance at Western University in London, Ontario. This year, Bethany began her groundbreaking doctoral research in Voice Image. Bethany loves to interview singers about their experiences of their own voices, and looks forward to continuing this important research throughout her life.
When she isn’t singing, Bethany loves to knit, read classic British literature, learn about intersectional feminism, and amuse her husband with her harebrained schemes.
