Coral Owdom

Soprano Coral Owdom is rapidly garnering acclaim on regional stages across the country. Following recent performances as Micaela, the Daily Townsman declared her to have "the soprano voice of the century," and exclaimed, "There is terror and glory in Owdom's instrument. Tone penetrates like nails against slate; yet possesses extreme beauty." The Pittsburgh Tribune agrees, lauding her as "riveting as Poppea"

In the 2004-05 season, Ms. Owdom debuts with both Fort Worth Opera as Amy in Little Women and Boheme Opera New Jersey in her first performances of Nedda in I Pagliacci.
She will also make her debut in Tosca with Rockland Opera as the title role. Her engagements during the 2003-04 season included Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni with Metro Lyric Opera and Micaela in Carmen with the Belleayre Music Festival.

Sought after for her accomplished performances of oratorio, Ms. Owdom's credits include Vivaldi's Gloria at the Todi Music Festival, Beethoven's Mass in C with both the Pittsburgh Concert Chorale, and Mendelssohn's Elijah with the Maryland Jewish Choral Society.
