MONICA YUNUS

Equally at home in concert, recital or on the operatic stage, soprano Monica Yunus is quickly establishing herself as one of America’s most promising young sopranos. She has been called “especially winning” by The New York Times, and commended for her “rich and sensuous voice [that] was utterly captivating.” Yunus has performed on some of the world’s greatest stages including The Metropolitan Opera, where she is a frequent presence. Her rôles include Norina in Don Pasquale, Adina in L’elisir d’amore, Alice in Le Comte Ory, Pamina in The Magic Flute, Gilda in Rigoletto, Countess in The Marriage of Figaro, Oscar in Un ballo in maschera among many others. She can be seen in several Metropolitan Opera HD broadcasts ranging from The Magic Flute to Le Comte Ory to La rondine. Her concert and recital performances have taken her all over the world, and in performances with legendary singers such as Plácido Domingo, José Carreras and Andrea Bocelli.

Yunus is a graduate of The Juilliard School, and is the co-executive director of Sing for Hope, a charitable organization based in New York, whose mission is to make the arts available to all. Artists of all types volunteer their talent to communities in need and make art radically available through projects such as Sing for Hope Pianos. For her contributions to the field of arts activism, Yunus has been honoured to give special performances at the United Nations and the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit, and received a 2009 DOHA 21st Century Leader Award in the category of Outstanding Humanitarian. She is the daughter of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus.
