Praised for her "warm tone," and for having the voice of an angel, mezzo-soprano Carrie Cheron has performed as a soloist with and as an ensemble member of such groups as Boston Baroque, Handel + Haydn Society, The American Classical Orchestra, Arcadia Players, Newton Baroque, Exsultemus, Yale Choral Artists, and Skylark Vocal Ensemble, among others. A champion of contemporary classical composition, Carrie recently starred as Doctor/Loki in Guerilla Opera's presentation of Per Bloland's opera Pedr Solis. Later this season, she will join New Gallery Concert Series in Boston, for the world premiere of a piece by composer Marti Epstein, written specifically for Carrie's voice. In May of this season, Carrie will make her Spivey Hall (Morrow, GA) debut as the alto soloist in Rachmaninoff's All-night Vigil, Opus 37, with Skylark Ensemble.
Recent solo highlights include the Mozart Requiem in D minor, Mozarts Vesperae solennes de Dominica with Hampshire Choral Society, Bachs Magnificat, Handels Israel in Egypt, the portrayal of Hillary Clinton in excerpts of composer Curtis K. Hughes opera Say it aint so, Joe, and Bach Cantatas with Atlantas New Trinity Baroque. Carrie is also currently preparing to record a series of Telemann Cantatas with some of the Boston areas most sought after baroque players, a reprisal of the program they presented as a fringe recital at the 2013 Boston Early Music Festival.
Carrie is particularly proud to be a founding and core member of the newly formed Eudaimonia, a conductorless period orchestra that uses musical performance to support the social and humanitarian work of partner organizations. Their inaugural performance supported the work of Shelter Music Boston, with which she is also a performer.
n addition to an active classical career, Carrie is a nationally recognized performing singer/songwriter. Her original compositions and singing have been recognized by the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, NEMO Music Makers Competition, Great Waters Folk Festival, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, and the Connecticut Folk Festival Songwriting Contest. She has shared the stage with such acclaimed artists as Sweet Honey In The Rock, The Barra MacNeils, Northern Lights, David Jacobs-Strain, Anais Mitchell, and Edie Carey, and is on the voice faculty at Berklee College of Music.
