Hailed as a “distinguished” “rising star” who sings “to great acclaim” and gives “delightful performances,” Boston- and New York-based soprano Corrine Byrne has quickly become a sought-after interpreter of repertoire from the medieval to the Baroque eras, and of music by today’s most daring composers. Byrne’s recent roles include Miranda (The Onion by Eric Sawyer), Loralei (Mallory by Nathaniel Parks), Roya (We the Innumerable by Niloufar Nourbahksh), Filia (Jepthe), Anna (Die Todsünden), Doctor (The Scarlet Professor by Eric Sawyer), Cathy (The Last Five Years), Gretel (Hansel and Gretel), and Anima (Ordo Virtutum).
Byrne was a young artist with the Boston Early Music Festival and the Lucerne Festival Academy, and has made solo appearances with the American Classical Orchestra, New York Chamber Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, REBEL Baroque Ensemble, Symphony New Hampshire, the Lake George Music Festival Orchestra, Mountainside Baroque, One World Symphony, Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra, Kansas City Baroque Consortium, the Madison Bach Musicians, Network for New Music, Amherst Symphony, West Shore Symphony, Harrisburg Choral Society, Westchester Oratorio Society, Lorelei Ensemble, the Harvard Radcliff Collegium Musicum, the Newburyport Chorale Society, and the Susquehanna Valley Chorale. Byrne sang alongside the Tallis Scholars with the Carnegie Hall Chamber Chorus, and sings regularly on Emmanuel Music’s Bach Cantata series. Byrne is a co-founder of Ensemble Musica Humana and The Byrne:Kozar:Duo, recently featured on NPR and a nationally broadcast episode of American Public Media’s Performance Today. Her recording of “Bring Something Incomprehensible into This World” was featured in The New Yorker’s 2017 Notable Recordings. She is also a core member of groundbreaking vocal ensemble Cut Circle, and of the early music collective Polyphemus.
Byrne is a member of Beyond Artists, a coalition of artists that donates a percentage of their concert fee to organizations they care about. She is a faculty member and Chair of Vocal Studies at the Longy School of Music at Bard College.
