With a background in instrumental as well as vocal performance, soprano Rachel Sitomer is a versatile musician quickly emerging into the operatic scene.
Operatic roles include Gilda in Rigoletto, First Witch in Dido and Aeneas, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Giannetta in L'elisir d'amore, both Papagena and Second Spirit in Die Zauberflöte, and Michaela in Carmen. This past season, she made her New York debut singing the role of Monica in The Medium with Chelsea Opera, where she was praised as "sing[ing] and act[ing] with a subtlety that suit[ed] the space and the show well." (Chelsea Clinton News, November 2012)
Equally at home with religious as well as secular music, Ms. Sitomer is also a professional cantor at both St. Jane Frances de Chantal Roman Catholic Church (Riviera Beach, MD), and the United States Naval Academy Chapel (Annapolis, MD).
Ms. Sitomer holds a Bachelor of Arts degree (voice and violin) from Bucknell University (magna cum laude). She is currently a student of Dr. Donald Wiggins.
