Sherezade Panthaki

SHEREZADE PANTHAKI’s (soprano) international success has been fueled by superbly honed musicianship; “shimmering sensitivity” (Cleveland Plain Dealer); a “radiant” voice (Washington Post); and passionately informed interpretations, “mining deep emotion from the subtle shaping of the lines” (New York Times). An acknowledged star in the early-music field, Panthaki has developed ongoing collaborations with many of the world’s leading interpreters including Nicholas McGegan, Simon Carrington, John Scott, Matthew Halls, Nicholas Kraemer, and Masaaki Suzuki, with whom she made her 2013 New York Philharmonic debut in a program of Bach and Mendelssohn. Highlights of her past and current season include Handel’s Messiah with Bach Collegium Japan (Tokyo); Handel’s Saul with the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra (Toronto); Handel and Bach oratorios with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (San Francisco); Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Houston Symphony; Handel’s Solomon with the Radio Kamer Filharmonie (Holland); and Bach’s St. John Passion, St. Matthew Passion, and Brahms Requiem with the Choir and Orchestra of St. Thomas Fifth Avenue, New York City. Born and raised in India, Panthaki holds an Artist Diploma from the Yale School of Music and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, where she won multiple awards, including the prestigious Phyllis Curtin Career Entry Prize. She earned a master’s degree from the University of Illinois and a bachelor’s degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College. For additional information, visit:
