A FEW THOUGHTS FROM ANGELA...

I believe that being a musician gives me the opportunity to bring people together. In a time when our society highlights our differences as negatives, one of my duties and privileges as a musician is to do the opposite; to find beauty in our differences and celebrate them. Experiencing art in all forms opens us up for personal growth. Finding a similarity between ourselves and the pure character, the evil character, or the ignorant one makes an “other” suddenly more relatable. Recognizing our commonalities helps us learn about ourselves and how we relate to others and in turn, hopefully helps us to relieve our inner and outer judgements, prejudices, and grow to be better members of society. Our experiences on either side of the stage transport to our lives outside of the performance, allowing us to shine a light on the little pieces of ourselves we may find in our neighbor.

Soprano Angela De Venuto has been known to bring on the laughs and break some hearts. This dynamic soprano has portrayed roles from the innocent girl next door, Emily Webb (Our Town), and the young ingenue, Lauretta (Gianni Schicchi), to the comedically jaded Despina (Così fan tutte), and cunning Adele (Die Fledermaus), to the fiery siren Angélique (Ibert), and the hauntingly obsessive Miss Jessel (The Turn of the Screw). In more intimate settings, Angela’s recital work has depicted the life and work of historical figures and legendary wordsmiths such as Verlaine, Rimbaud, Mörike, Goethe, Jammes, Toni Morrison, Agee, Rubino, and the wives of King Henry VIII, set by influential composers like Debussy, N. Boulanger, Libby Larsen, Previn, Pasatieri, Britten, Wolf, Barber, Poulenc, Bolcom, Respighi, and Schubert among others.

Angela’s understanding and great appreciation for the artists of the past inspires in her a passionate curiosity for the future of Classical music. Her affinity for new and lesser known composers has made her a sought after performer of this music. Highlights include Comala Suite by Zohn-Muldoon based on the novel Pedro Párama by Mexican author Juan Rulfo, Ode on St. Cecelia’s Day by Parry, Poems of Amy Lowell set by Benjamin Krause, and Estonian folk texts set by Leo Radosavljevic. 

 

Angela has been awarded first prizes in the Classical Singer competition Emerging Professional Division (2017), Musician’s Club of Women (2017), the Sherrill Milnes Opera Idol competition (2016), and been named a Regional Finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council competition (2018). 

 

Angela received her Masters and Bachelors of Music degrees in Vocal Performance from DePaul University.
