Biography

Praised for her "high, sweet coloratura" and "nuanced performance", soprano Alison Scherzer's creative portfolio spans opera, musical theater, concert, operetta, theater and film. She will be joining the Equilibrium Young Artists initiative during the 20/21 season as The Queen for the world premiere of Gerald Barry's opera Salome, conducted by Barbara Hannigan at the Los Angeles Philharmonic and with the Ludwig Orchestra at the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

Scherzer studied at the University of Cincinnati - College Conservatory of Music (CCM) for her Master of Music degree and Artist Diploma studies.
"Mais la virtuosité des chanteurs (en particulier celle du ténor Timur et de la soprano Alison Scherzer), leur légèreté vocale, leur capicité à assumer les aigus, fascinent."
— La Liberté
