"Triumphant... having the utmost dramatic force"
Helen Meyerhoff - Soprano
A soprano praised in The New York Times for the "unabashed lushness" of her voice and with interpretation described by The Independent as "Triumphant... having the utmost dramatic force", Helen recently made debuts both at the Wigmore Hall and on BBC Radio 3 (live from the City of London Festival). Now a regular performer at the Wigmore, Helen also frequently appears as a recitalist with leading accompanists and ensembles internationally. Recent and forthcoming engagements include performances in the Purcell Room, Barbican and St John's, Smith Square in London, the Schoenberg Centre in Vienna, Bargemusic in New York, and in recital with Jonathan Zak in Tel Aviv, as well as for festivals such as Edinburgh, Cheltenham, Leamington, Boxgrove and Bromsgrove in the UK.
Helen is experienced on the operatic stage and has sung the roles of Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Titania (A Midsummer Night's Dream) and Belinda (Dido and Aeneas) for Opera Shorts, Papagena (Die Zauberflöte) for the Aldeburgh Festival and Clorinda (Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda) for the Northern Aldeborough Festival. Helen was also a finalist in this year's New York Centre for Contemporary Opera Competition. A specialist in the contemporary repertoire, she has given many UK and World premiers. She also sang Judith Weir's King Harald's Saga for the Vale of Glamorgan Festival and Sprechstimme in Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire for the Rambert Dance Company. Helen's discography includes music by Pärt, Bliss, Langlais, Vierne, and Patterson.
