Recognized for the luminosity and effortless agility of her voice, as well as her commanding stage presence and profound acting ability, Canadian soprano Shannon Mercer enthusiastically embraces a range of repertoire from early to contemporary music, from Francesca Caccini and Monteverdi to John Beckwith and Ana Sokolovic. Shannon maintains a busy and challenging performance calendar of opera, concert, and recital engagements throughout North America and Europe while also sustaining an active recording presence, capturing some rarely performed works. In the 2015-2016 season, audiences will hear Shannon sing Pamina in Die Zauberflöte with Calgary Opera; Purcell’s The Fairy Queen and Mozart’s Esultate, Jubilate with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra; and the Messiah with the Oregon Symphony.
