Teresa Wakim

With a voice of "extraordinary suppleness and beauty" (The New York Times), soprano Teresa Wakim has garnered wide acclaim for performances of opera, oratorio, and chamber music. A graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory and Boston University, she enjoys an internationally successful career performing and recording music from the Renaissance to the 21st century and is perhaps best known as "a fine baroque stylist." Noted engagements include performances with the Cleveland Orchestra, Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, San Antonio Symphony, Apollo's Fire, Charlotte Symphony, the Handel & Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, and Tragicomedia. She has sung under the batons of Harry Christophers, Ton Koopman, Roger Norrington, and Nicolas McGegan. A recipient of many honors, Ms. Wakim won First Prize in the Internationaler Solistenwettbewerb fur Alte Musik in Brunnenthal, Austria, and was named a Lorraine Hunt Lieberson Fellow by Emmanuel Music. She is featured on two Grammy-nominated recordings of Lully operas with the Boston Early Music Festival, Psyché (as Flore) and Thésée (as Bergère) and has also recorded with Seraphic Fire, Blue Heron, the Handel & Haydn Society, and Musik Ekklesia.
