Biography

Praised for her “moving, involved expression,” Atlanta-born soprano Kellie Motter is becoming known as a versatile artist in repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary. She is a recent graduate of Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, where she held the prestigious Georgina Joshi Graduate Fellowship.

As a young artist, Kellie has spent her summers with Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, where she study-covered Zerbinetta (Ariadne auf Naxos) and with Central City Opera, where she covered Frasquita (Carmen). With IU Opera Theater, Kellie has performed the roles of Marie (La fille du régiment), Despina (Così fan tutte), Galatea (Acis & Galatea), Morgana (Alcina) and Lucia (Lucia di Lammermoor). Other notable role credits include La Fée (Cendrillon) with the Siena Music Festival and Pamina (Die Zauberflöte) with Harrower Summer Opera. Her 2018-2019 season included her house debut with Opera Naples in the roles of Silvia (L'isola disabitata) and Frasquita (Carmen). In the 2019-2020 season, she performed with Opera Iowa as a Resident Artist in their touring production of The Magic Flute, and joined the roster of Apprentice Artists at Des Moines Metro Opera for their virtual summer season. Highlights of her 2020-2021 season include her return to Des Moines Metro Opera, where she will cover the role of Thalie in Rameau's Platée, a concert of operatic favorites with the Northwest Indiana Symphony under the baton of Gary Wedow, and various recital appearances in Nashville, Tennessee.
"A lovely quality, easy production, good balance between bright and dark... this is a first-class and sophisticated voice.” The American Prize
