Stacey Fraser

Canadian soprano Stacey Fraser’s eclectic musical interests have led her to sing on international operatic, concert and theatre stages across the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe. She has appeared as a soloist for the San Diego Opera, the Tony Award winning La Jolla Playhouse, the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Taipei National Concert Hall in Taiwan, ISCM Taiwan, the Musicasa Concert Hall in Tokyo, Japan, the Thailand Composition Festival, the Americké Jaro Festival in Prednasek, Czech Republic, Red Square Gallery in Hong Kong, the Festival Eduardo Mata in Oaxaca, Mexico, ISCM Taiwan, Vancouver Symphony, South Dakota Symphony, La Jolla Symphony, San Bernardino Symphony, Banff Centre, Tanglewood Music Center, Asia Society NYC, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center and the world renowned La MaMa Experimental Theatre in New York City.

She has received critical acclaim from international papers such as The New York Times, the San Diego Union Tribune, Oltner Tagblatt of Olten, Switzerland and the Press Enterprise of the Inland Empire for her performances in both standard and contemporary repertoire. Her performance of Seven Songs from the Unknown Kurt Weill was described by the San Diego Union Tribune as “marvelously edgy” and “showed delicious physicality and intelligent restraint”. Publications include an article entitled “Confluences of Vocal Techniques in Koji Nakano’s Time Song II” as part of the book Music of Japan Today for Cambridge Scholar Press.

Ms. Fraser can be heard in the role of Lisinga on the premiere recording of Manuel del Pópulo Vicente Garcia’s opera Le Cinesi for Harmonicorde Recordings and on the new release Lotusblume for the Viennese independent label, ein Klang records.
