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 Roya (We the Innumerable), Filia (Jepthe), Anna (Die Todsünden), Doctor (The Scarlet Professor), 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 REBEL Baroque Ensemble, Symphony New Hampshire, Mountainside Baroque, the Lake George Music Festival Orchestra, One World Symphony, Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra, Kansas City Baroque Consortium, the Madison Bach Musicians, Amherst Symphony, West Shore Symphony, Harrisburg Choral Society, Westchester Oratorio Society, New Music Miami, Lorelei Ensemble, the Susquehanna Valley Chorale, and the Tallis Scholars & Carnegie Hall Chamber Chorus, and is a core member of the Schola Cantorum of St. Vincent Ferrer Church in Manhattan.
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, and whose recording of “Bring Something Incomprehensible Into This World” was featured in the New Yorker Magazine’s 2017 Notable Recordings.
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 serves as a faculty member and Chair of Vocal Studies at the Longy School of Music at Bard College.
