Acclaimed for her powerful lyric voice, her intensity onstage, and her well-honed vocal technique, Soprano, Kristin Vogel has been honored in multiple international competitions, and is sought for roles that require dramatic passion and sensitive musicality.
This past season Ms. Vogel sang the role of Mimi with Tacoma Opera and joined the Utah Festival Opera as the title role in Madama Butterfly and the Soprano Soloist in their performance of Verdi’s Requiem. Critics hailed Ms. Vogel’s debut production as Cio Cio San stating “"What was unexpected was the explosive return of Kristin K. Vogel...in an electrifying performance..Ms. Vogel is a consumate actress..her ability to combine sensitive musicality with genuine passion in her vocal performance...."
Ms. Vogel recently sang her first Nedda in I Pagliacci with St. Petersburg Opera in Florida, her first Donna Anna in Don Giovanni with Asheville Lyric Opera, and many Mozart heroines in a series of “3 Divas” concerts with Northwest Sinfonietta in Seattle, Tacoma, and Puyallup.
Recently Ms. Vogel jumped in last minute to sing the Soprano Solos in Mozart’s “Requiem” with the Bellingham Concert Chorale and traveled to Montana to sing the soprano solos in Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with the Helena Symphony Orchestra, where she previously sang “Una Poenitentium/Gretchen” in Mahler's 8th Symphony. Ms. Vogel’s additional symphonic repertoire includes the soprano solos in Beethoven's 9th and Mahler's 2nd Symphonies, Mozart’s Requiem, Debussy’s Cinq Poèmes de Baudelaire, and Aaron Copland’s orchestrated Poems of Emily Dickinson, and she frequently performs with Seattle’s Inverted Space Modern Ensemble. This season Ms. Vogel joines the Port Angeles Symphony on their Fall Pops Concert and will return in the Spring starring as Santuzza in their Cavalleria Rusticana. She returns to Boheme Opera as part of their Fall Gala concert and she will join Knoxville Opera’s touring production of Turandot as Liu.
Originally from Texas, Ms. Vogel earned her master's degree from Manhattan School of Music and her bachelor's degree from the University of Southern California, and has sung with high-profile young artist programs at Des Moines Metro Opera, the Natchez Festival of Music, the Utah Festival Opera, and others. Ms. Vogel is now completing her doctorate at the University of Washington, and she spent spring 2015 in Vienna researching her dissertation as a recipient of the prestigious Fritz Fellowship.
