Carmen Pelton, soprano

The soprano Carmen Pelton came to international attention when she made her début as Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte with the Aldeburgh Festival. She has since performed many of Mozart’s heroines, including Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Giunia in Lucio Silla, and Tamiri in Il Re Pastore. She has sung with Glimmerglass Opera, Long Beach Opera, Tulsa Opera, Opera Omaha, and New Jersey June Opera. She has appeared as a soloist with orchestras nationwide, including those of San Francisco, St Louis, Baltimore, Atlanta, Seattle, and Houston, as well as with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Choral Arts Society of Washington. Her 1998 Telarc recording of Barber’s Prayers of Kierkegaard and Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem with the Atlanta Symphony and Robert Shaw won Grammies in three different categories, including “Best Classical Album” and “Best Choral Album.” Carmen Pelton has also gained recognition singing contemporary music, starring in Frank Galati’s She Always Said, Pablo at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago and The Mother of Us All, which she has sung in major revivals around the United States. She appears regularly with Da Camera of Houston, the Twentieth Century Consort, and Sergio Luca’s chamber group Context.
