Meghan Kasanders has been hailed by Opera News as “a wonderfully promising, rich dramatic soprano”. During the 2018-2019 season, Ms. Kasanders made her Carnegie Hall debut singing in Bernstein's Songfest under the direction of Marin Alsop and the role of Magda Sorel in Opera Saratoga’s critically acclaimed production of The Consul. She also performed Sibelius’ Luonnotar with Maestra Barbara Hannigan in Alice Tully Hall (NYC) and Donna Anna in Mozart’s Don Giovanni at The Juilliard School.

Ms. Kasanders is a 2019 Grand Finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and both the First Prize and Audience Choice Winner in the 2019 Dallas Opera Guild Vocal Competition. She has also been recognized by the Gerda Lissner Foundation, Opera Birmingham (Second Prize and Audience Choice), and the Mildred Miller International Voice Competition, where she won first prize in 2017 as the youngest competitor.

Meghan’s training has included past resident artist apprenticeships with International Meistersinger Akademie (Neumarkt, Germany), Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, Des Moines Metro Opera, Opera Saratoga, and Dolora Zajick’s Institute for Young Dramatic Voices. Ms. Kasanders holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Simpson College, a Master of Music degree from Rice University, and an Artist Dipolma in Opera Studies from The Juilliard School, where she was the recipient of The Richard F. Gold Career Grant.
