Recognized for her work in the baroque repertoire, Canadian soprano Karina Gauvin also sings Mahler, Britten and the music of the late 20th and 21st centuries with equal success. The prestigious distinctions she has received include the title of “Soloist of the Year” awarded by the Communauté internationale des radios publiques de langue française, first prize in the CBC Radio competition for young performers, and the Virginia Parker Prize and Maggie Teyte Memorial Prize in London. In the 2017-18 season she continues to thrill audiences both in the United States and Canada as soloist in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 for the Handel and Haydn Society, in Messiah with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, in Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem with the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, and in a Russian Baroque program with Early Music Vancouver. She also tours widely in Europe, giving concerts and recitals in Switzerland, Poland, Russia, France, Germany and Finland.

"Yesterday’s recital began with three of Haydn’s English canzonettas and proceeded on to a set of old American songs arranged by Aaron Copland. She mixed the sentimental with the humourous and displayed her powerfully dramatic voice with all its shades of colour and vocal agility."
