Currently based out of Vancouver, Irish-born soprano Sinéad White has maintained an active performing and teaching schedule. She was recently the soprano soloist in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in Kelowna, BC with the Okanagan Festival Singers alongside members of the Okanagan Symphony as well as a soprano soloist in Bach’s B Minor Mass with SummerChor at St. Andrew’s-Wesley. Last year, she was awarded an Art of Song Fellowship at the Toronto Summer Music Festival where she studied and performed a range of art song repertoire. She has received additional training at the Canadian Vocal Arts Institute and the Advanced Singer/Oratorio Program at the Victoria Conservatory of Music.
In 2014, Sinéad was a fellow at the Sibelius Academy in Santa Fe where she worked on contemporary repertoire with Canadian soprano/conductor Barbara Hannigan. Her opera credits include Suor Genovieffa in Suor Angelica with the Dublin Opera Studio Program, Zerlina in Don Giovanni with ViVace Opera and Giulietta in Opera McGill’s production of I Capuleti e i Montecchi. She looks forward to completing a one-year Advanced Certificate of Performance with early music specialization at the University of Toronto this coming year. Sinéad completed her BMus and MMus in Voice/Opera at McGill University with tenor, Stefano Algieri and continues to work privately with baritone, Dale Throness. This year, she has studied baroque repertoire with soprano, Nancy Argenta thanks to the generous scholarship from Early Music Vancouver.
