Luthien Brackett

Praised by the press for her “lushness and delicacy,” “easy, appealing alto” and “silky tone among all registers,” she is in great demand as a concert soloist and professional chorister.  Her most recent solo appearances include Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Johnstown Symphony Orchestra; Bach’s St. John Passion with The Sebastians and TENET; Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with the Washington Bach Consort; Handel’s Messiah with The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Rochester Chamber Orchestra, and Charlotte Symphony Orchestra; and the Russian premiere of Maximilian Steinberg’s Passion Week with The Clarion Society at the Grand Hall Philharmonic in St. Petersburg.  She can be heard later this summer in the role of the Sorceress in Dido and Aeneas for Finger Lakes Opera.  Among her numerous commercial recordings are three GRAMMY-nominated albums: Handel’s Israel in Egypt with the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra (2013), Julia Wolfe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Anthracite Fields with the Bang on a Can All-Stars (2015), and Maximilian Steinberg’s Passion Week with The Clarion Society (2017). Luthien is a member of the Choir of Trinity Wall Street, and appears regularly with several of America’s other preeminent professional vocal ensembles, including The Antioch Chamber Ensemble (of which she is a founding member), TENET, The Clarion Society, Santa Fe Desert Chorale, Spire Chamber Ensemble, and Seraphic Fire. www.LuthienBrackett.com.
