Biography

Soprano, Cara Gabrielson, was a 2020 National Semi Finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and made her San Francisco Symphony debut as the Soprano Soloist in Bach’s Magnificat and Bernstein's Chichester Psalms. In 2019-20 she participated in the prestigious Georg Solti Accademia di Bel Canto, held a Fellowship at the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Festival and joined the Opera Idaho Young Artists Program to perform the title role in Acis & Galatea, Poussette in Manon, and Sister Catherine in Dead Man Walking. Her cover assignments while there included Mimì in La bohème and the title role in Manon.

Cara was the Winner of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music Concerto Competition where she performed Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate and holds awards from the James Toland Vocal Arts Competition, East Bay Opera League, Berkeley Piano Club Voice Competition, and Henry & Maria Holt Memorial Scholarship Competition. California Bay Area performances have included Norina (Don Pasquale) with Pocket Opera, Elisena (Ifigenia in Aulide) and Jocasta (Le Amazzoni) with Ars Minerva, and the Foreign Woman (The Consul) with Berkeley Chamber Opera.

Cara graduated with her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where she sang the roles of Musetta (La bohème), Atalanta (Serse), Nerone (Agrippina), The Rose (The Little Prince) and Drusilla (L’incoronazione di Poppea). She is an alumna of Houston Grand Opera's Young Artists Vocal Academy and the Opera Saratoga Young Artist Program.
“But the star of the evening was the young San Francisco soprano Cara Gabrielson ... gave a performance of remarkable grandeur and precision, singing with vibrant color and a beautifully modulated range of expressive techniques; her every contribution to the proceedings was reason to sit up and take notice.”
— The San Francisco Chronicle
