Alexandra Smither, soprano

An adventurous performer and one of the CBC’s 2017 “30 Young Hot Classical Musicians Under 30”, Canadian soprano Alexandra Smither is a fresh fixture on the worldwide stage. Her “sunny, cloudless top” and “silky, light, soprano” are an organic fit in staple repertoire of Mozart and Monteverdi; Ms. Smither’s signature rapport with new music shows her as “an extraordinarily adept soprano, one who can shriek, gurgle, cackle, mutter, gesture, and declaim as well as sing beautifully.” (The Threepenny Blog) She has sung with acclaimed organizations including the Boston Symphony and Houston Grand Opera. 2021/2022 brings her debut with the California Symphony, and a new role debut with Ars Lyrica. In addition to singing, Ms. Smither works for Houston in Action and is an organizer with Stop TxDOT I-45.
