Soprano Emily Noël, praised for her “sparkling performances” and “sheer vocal beauty” by The Washington Post, concertizes throughout North America and Europe in a wide variety of repertory expanding from the Medieval to the contemporary. Highlights of recent seasons include Measure for Measure at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington DC (opposite Sir Derek Jacobi); Davenant’s Macbeth at the Folger Shakespeare Theatre; The Merchant of Venice at the Wanamaker Theatre at Shakespeare’s Globe in London; Vaughn Williams’ Riders to the Sea at the Amsterdam Grachtenfestival; and Verdi’s Rigoletto at Ente Concerti Città di Iglesias in Sardinia, Italy. With multiple ensemble recordings on the Bard, Dorian, and AVIE labels, her 2018 solo performance on Albany Records’ Past Made Present was acclaimed for its “alluring clarity and fluidity” by The Wall Street Journal.
A passionate educator, Emily has served on the faculties of Franklin & Marshall College, Notre Dame of Maryland University, and The Community College of Rhode Island. Emily’s vocal students have garnered much success in recent years, going on to pursue graduate degrees in voice at New York University, Berklee College of Music, Mannes College of Music, and New England Conservatory.
