Vocalist - Soprano
About

In the world of classical vocalism, the name Meredith Hansen and the words ‘high caliber’ are becoming regularly linked. Hailed a “standout” by Ted Medrek of the Boston Herald for her performance of Antonia in Les Contes d'Hoffmann, she has scored many successes, both domestically and internationally. For her performance of Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle with Masterworks Chorale, the Boston Globe offered the following praise: “Soprano Meredith Hansen sang the surprisingly sweet ‘Crucifixus’ with a creamy tone and soared in the ‘O salutaris hostia.’” Opera magazine (UK) deemed her “a real find”, and Opera News stated, “As Marzelline, the jailer’s daughter in love with Fidelio, soprano Meredith Hansen was a bright, clever presence, and the size and color of her voice matched the role perfectly. She succeeded where very few singers do, making perfect dramatic sense of a romantic comedy figure essentially stranded in this otherwise dark and serious work."

"Meredith Hansen sang affectingly as the young Suzel.... The score's Cherry Duet – one of the few well-known passages – proved the evening's highlight."
