American soprano Anne-Kathryn Olsen is a versatile vocal artist with a passion for historical music: from the gothic Italian avant-garde to the early folk music of Appalachian America; from Renaissance polyphony to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Solo performances have brought her to the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, La Monnaie in Brussels, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and the Musikverein in Graz. She is regularly invited to take part in Europe’s most important music festivals such as Festival Oudemusiek Utrecht, Festival Saintes, Resonanzen, the Berliner Festspiele, Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik, Ravenna Festival, and many others. She has collaborated with Pedro Memelsdorff and Mala Punica, Václav Luks and Collegium 1704, Guillermo Pérez and Tasto Solo, Christina Pluhar and L’Arpeggiata, Gli Angeli Genève, Rene Jacobs and the Freiburger Barockerchester, Doulce Memoire, Ton Koopman & the Amsterdam Baroque Soloists, Helmuth Rilling, the American Bach Soloists in San Francisco, and Björn Schmelzer and graindelavoix, with whom she has recorded many records on the Glossa label. Also a proponent of new music, she presented a solo program at the experimental electronic festival, the Long Now in Berlin and, together with soprano Carine Tinney, she premiered an opera for two voices, female chorus, and electronics by the Scottish experimental composer Jane Dickson for La Monnaie’s interdisciplinary project Orfeo et Majnun in 2018 in Brussels. She has given masterclasses at the Fondation Royaumont and at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and is passionate about cultivating curiosity and love for medieval and renaissance repertoires in young professionals.
