Soprano Anna Elder’s voice has been described by The New York Times as “ethereal…a voice that has blues, reds and purples in it”. She currently performs with ensembles Kamratōn and wolfTrap. She has appeared with Alia Musica and Nat28. Anna sang with Squonk Opera, premiering Go Roadshow and the Off-Broadway version of Mayhem and Majesty. Other engagements include Music for 18 with New Music Detroit, and appearing as a guest vocalist with Quince Ensemble. A graduate of The Eastman School of music, Ms. Elder’s repertoire includes works by Giacinto Scelsi, Luciano Berio, Georges Aperghis, Anton Webern, Kaija Saariaho, Arnold Schoenberg, and Claude Debussy. She will premiere a new piece by Elizabeth Brown in March and Her Holiness The Winter Dog, an opera by Curtis Rumrill for Kamratōn, Quince Ensemble, and Shana Simmons Contemporary Dance in May, 2019. Anna received a $10,000 award from an anonymous donor for her artistic contributions to Pittsburgh, PA. Anna can be heard on the album Squonk Opera’s “Go Roadshow” and can be seen anywhere from a basement to a concert hall. https://www.bleepbloopvoice.com/
