Canadian Soprano Meredith Hall delights audiences internationally with her “lustrous sound and fluent legato” (San Francisco Chronicle). She's equally at home in Opera and Oratorio. She is especially in demand for Baroque and Classical works, particularly those of Mozart and Handel.
Performances in 2015-2016 included ‘A Celtic Christmas’ programme for Apollo’s Fire in Cleveland and New York and MESSIAH for the Toledo Symphony and the Amadeus Choir in Toronto. Recent engagements include appearances for St. Paul’s Lyra Baroque Orchestra singing Mozart and Haydn, Bach’s JOHANNES PASSION with the Baldwin Wallace Bach Festival, his B MINOR MASS with the Amadeus Choir of Toronto, MATTHÄUS PASSION with the Grand Philharmonic Choir of Kitchener Waterloo, HIPPOLYTE ET ARICIE for VOICEBOX: Opera in Concert, and MESSIAHs for Symphony Nova Scotia and the Newfoundland Symphony. She has also been featured by Music and Beyond in Ottawa and at the SweetWater Music Festival.
Her performances as Susanna in THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO with the same company were received with great acclaim in Toronto and Tokyo. Previous operatic engagements have included Giunone in Cavalli’s ERCOLE AMANTE in Utrecht, Tanglewood and Boston; Eurydice in Gluck’s ORFEO for Cleveland Opera; Galatea in Handel’s ACIS AND GALATEA for Opera Atelier; Dido in DIDO AND AENEAS for Apollo’s Fire (Cleveland); Messagiera in Monteverdi’s ORFEO for Vancouver Early Music; and Altisidore in Boismortier’s DON QUICHOTTE for Paris’ Opera Comique.
She has recorded several albums on the ATMA label with the early music ensemble La Nef, including Songs of Robbie Burns, Oikan ayns Bethlehem and the Battle of Killiecranckie and her latest CD with Apollo’s Fire is Sacrum Mysterium.
