Contralto
About

Performing in such major venues as Carnegie Hall, Jordan Hall, Disney Hall, Prague’s Smetana Hall, and Vienna’s Stefansdom, American contralto Emily Marvosh has been gaining praise for her “flexible technique and ripe color,” “sterling voice,” and “tone that [has] the velvety soulfulness of a cello”. Her 2017-18 season currently includes two appearances as soloist in Handel’s Messiah: at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC and in a return to the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra. She also sings as soloist in Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with Boston’s Cantata Singers.

A regular member of the renowned vocal ensemble, Seraphic Fire, Miss Marvosh can be heard on their recent GRAMMY-nominated recording of Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem. Personal awards include the prestigious Adams Fellowship at the Carmel Bach Festival, the American Prize in the Oratorio and Art Song divisions, and second place in the New England Regional NATSAA competition.

"'But Who May Abide' glowed with awestruck veneration, and not just because of the anticipation generated by the compelling side story of how a singer with heart was plucked from the chorus like Ruby Keeler in 42nd Street. For her solo debut with H+H, sultry contralto Emily Marvosh emerged more like Lena Horne in Stormy Weather. In singing of her Refiner’s fire, she kindled her own, especially in the repeated verse which melded ornament and consolation most fittingly."
