AGENDA

La Provence - 20 août 2018   Concert magique au château

Dernièrement, le trio Syrinx composé d’Amy Blake (soprano), Paula Thomas (flûte traversière), Georges-Henri Ducreux (piano) a donné un concert au château. Un concert original qui sortait des sentiers battus avec un répertoire composé en majorité de mélodies françaises. La diction impeccable du texte de Gabriel Mourey sur le dieu Pan lu par Amy Blake, tandis que résonnait l’air de flûte de Syrinx fut un des moments forts de cette soirée.

Amy Christianna Blake     soprano

Hailed for her “beautiful singing” and “tremendous power and stage presence” by The New York Times, Amy Christianna Blake combines a rich expressive soprano voice with dynamic interpretation.

 

Her exciting and moving performances of a diverse operatic and concert repertoire have firmly established her as one of today's most promising artists.

 

For her artistry as a recitalist, she has received high acclaim. “Ms. Blake sang with such inner conviction, eloquence, passion and elegance that she brought the house down.” (New Music Connoisseur).

Last summer, Amy and a dynamic team, including Céline Barcaroli, stage director, Stéphane Eliot and Michel Béjar, danser and choregrapher, created "Amado mio - Hommage à Rita Hayworth", an innovative show mixing theater, danse and music. The same team created HOLLYWOOD MELODY, a show of dance and music from movie musicals from the 40s, 50s, and 60s.  She participated in Celebrate Voice's LOCKDOWN Live Virtuel concert series, produced by Lynsey Docherty and recognised as a positive initiative by the Queen of England.  Amy sang concerts at the Château Nestuby in Cotignac, La Chappelle Victoria in Grasse and at the prestigious Centre d'Art Yvon Morin in Poët Laval.   

Recently, she sang the roles of la Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro by Mozart and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni for Celebrate Voice under the musical direction of Phillip Thomas, Violetta in La Traviata at the National Opera of Varna, Bulgaria (conductor Stefano Seghadoni). She was La Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro for Opus Opéra (conductor Nicolas Krüger), Musetta in La Bohème and the First Lady in Die Zauberflőte for Opera Panamà. Amy sang the title role in La Damoiselle Elue by Claude Debussy in Biot, France and Buchen, Germany for l'Année Debussy.

She sang Elena in Paride ed Elena by Gluck for the Caramoor Opera Festival, (conductor Will Crutchfield), Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni and Pamina in Die Zauberflöte for Natchez Opera Festival. She was chosen to create Juana la Loca III for the the world premiere of Rage d'Amour for Tanglewood Music Center (conductor Stefan Asbury). She sang Octavian in Der Rosenkavalier in Graz, Austria for AIMS (conductor Cornelius Eberhardt).

Amy has sung numerous soprano solos in oratorios, including Handel Messiah, Mozart Requiem, Vesperae solennes de confessore and C minor Mass, Saint Saëns L'Oratorio de Noël (conductor Michel Piquemal), Dvořak Stabat Mater and Te Deum (conductor Alain Joutard), Mendelssohn's Hör mein Bitten (conductor Wolfgang Doerner), Strauss Vier Letzte Lieder, Brahms Requiem and Liebeslieder Waltzer, Berlioz Les Nuits d'été and excerpts from West Side Story.

Equally at home on the concert stage, Amy has given recitals for Festivals Ninon Vallin and Liszt Côte d'Azur, the concert series Monaco Musique de Chambre, in New York City at Merkin Hall and Symphony Space and the Kunstmuseum, Stavanger, Norway.

A passionate contemporary music lover, she has created numerous works, many of which were written for her, by composers including Paul Brantley, Hampson Sisler, David Eddelman, Jean-Pierre Nouvel, Yuka Takechi and Robert Zuidam. Amy had the great honor to be Resident Artist at the renowned Fondation Royaumont. She was selected for Les Saisons de la Voix by pianist, Jeff Cohen.

Holder of Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Vocal Performance from Texas Tech University, she also studied at the Bel Canto Institute with Jane Klaviter at the Metropolitan Opera, Tanglewood Music Center, Des Moines Metro Opera and the Centre d'Art Lyrique de la Méditerranée. She has participated in masterclasses with Renata Scotto, Licia Albanese, Lucy Shelton, Phyllis Curtin, Cheryl Studer and Elly Ameling. She was awarded a study grant for the Licia Albanese-Puccini Foundation and was finalist for the American Artists Center at the Lyric Opera Center of Chicago. Amy enjoyed numerous years of personal study with Dalton Baldwin, classic music treasure.

Having grown up in West Texas, Amy now resides on the Côte d'Azur and continues to study with Jane Highfield, Phillip Thomas and Françoise Ogéas.
