Canadian soprano Meredith Hall delights audiences internationally with her “lustrous sound and fluent legato” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “bravura musical perform-ances matched by a [sense of the] dramatic” (Boston Globe).
At home in opera and oratorio, she is especially in demand for Baroque and Classical works, particularly those of Mozart and Handel. Ms. Hall has recorded with such groups as La Nef, Les Musiciens du Louvre, Le Concert Spirituel, The Musicians of the Globe, The Toronto Consort, Aradia Baroque Ensemble, and Tafelmusik. Her opera appearances have included the title roles in Monteverdi’s L’Incoronazione di Poppea (Houston, Grand Opera and Opera Atelier, Toronto), Rameau’s Zephyr (San Francisco’s Philharmonia Baroque) and Handel’s Partenope (Göttingen Handel Festival, Germany), Pamina in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte (Opera Atelier, Toronto) and Phébé in Rameau’s Castor et Pollux (Opera in Concert, Toronto).
On the concert stage, Ms. Hall made her debut with the Toronto Symphony in Handel’s Messiah, a work which she also performed with the Memphis Symphony, Victoria Symphony and with Apollo’s Fire in Severance Hall, Cleveland. Other concert appearances include Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and the Arcadia Chamber Orchestra in Osaka, Japan and Handel’s Gloria with Pittsburgh’s Chatham Baroque. Ms. Hall has collaborated with notable conductors including Nicholas McGegan, Christopher Hogwood, Andrew Parrott, Marc Minkowski, David Fallis, and Mario Bernardi.
