American soprano Alyson Cambridge, hailed by critics as “radiant, vocally assured, dramatically subtle and compelling, and artistically imaginative” (Washington Post), noted for her “powerful, clear voice” (New York Times), and “revelatory, sensual, smoky readings” (Opera News) is one of the most diverse and compelling vocal artists on the scene today.
In recent seasons, Cambridge enjoyed successful forays into the crossover, Broadway and jazz repertoire, most notably with award-winning and critically-acclaimed performances of Julie in Show Boat and Vi in Gershwin’s rarely performed jazz-opera Blue Monday. Alyson’s debut album, From the Diary of Sally Hemings, a song-cycle by acclaimed American composer William Bolcom, premiered at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall to rave reviews, and her newest album, Until Now, a mix of jazz, pop, and musical theater standards was released in January 2016 on the Naxos imprint Suite 28 Records, and is available on iTunes and Amazon.
Her rich, warm soprano, combined with her strikingly beautiful stage presence and affecting musical and dramatic interpretation, have brought her over a decade of successes on the world’s leading opera and concert stages, including The Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Washington National Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Carnegie Hall, London’s Royal Albert Hall, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Vienna Konzerthaus, among others, as well as recent debuts in Paris, Warsaw, Beijing, and other musical capitals throughout Europe and Asia.

Alyson Cambridge: Until Now
On the heels of the recent release of her new album, internationally acclaimed soprano, Alyson Cambridge, takes a step away from the opera stage and classical repertoire that has defined her career thus far, and showcases her full range of vocal talents, never before heard on recording…that is, until now! This concert, and the accompanying album give an eclectic and thoughtful representation of Alyson in a range of musical tastes, influences, and vocal styles. In this concert, Alyson takes you on a musical journey exploring her artistic influences with a diverse program of favorite songs including: “Black Coffee,” a song she heard as a young artist and couldn’t get out of her head; “Bill,” from Show Boat, a show with sentimental value and influence on her career; and “Fever,” just because it’s fun and sexy! Sting and The Police’s “Every Breath You Take,” a childhood favorite, and Vanessa Williams’ “Save the Best for Last,” both singer and song, were a tremendous influence on Alyson.
Alyson Cambridge has presented many masterclasses in several styles ranging from opera to musical theater crossover, and in between for young artists looking to take the next step for their career. In addition, Alyson enjoys hosting Q&As about her wide-spanning career and the industries she works in with topics including young artist programs, management, voice changing, switching between opera, musical theater, jazz, charity/philanthropy work, professional modeling, etc.
