[ Soprano ]
Raised in a musical family in Northern Michigan, soprano Addy Sterrett enjoys exploring a wide variety of solo and ensemble repertoire. She currently studies with James Taylor at Yale University’s Institute of Sacred Music as a member of the Voxtet. During her time at Yale, she has been a featured soloist in Bach’s Magnificat, Hasse’s Miserere in c minor, Handel’s Occasional Oratorio, and the premiere of Reena Esmail’s This Love Between Us: Prayers for Unity with Yale Schola Cantorum. Sterrett has worked with conductors David Hill, Masaaki Suzuki, Gabriel Crouch, and Nicholas McGegan and has enjoyed collaborations with early music ensembles Juilliard415 and Gallicantus. Addy is a graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy and holds a bachelor’s degree from DePauw University (B.M. ’16) where she studied with Pamela Coburn. While at DePauw, she performed the roles of Beth (Little Women, Adamo) and Ottavia (L’incoronazione di Poppea) and worked with 21st century composers Mark Adamo, Roberto Sierra, and Gabriela Lena Frank. Although currently pursuing a master’s degree in early music, Addy is always looking for new ways of expression through contemporary and rarely performed works. When not singing, she enjoys traveling and exploring the great outdoors.
