Praised for her ‘lithe and elegant’ lyric soprano, Carolyne DalMonte is a versatile artist whose skills are equally at home in opera, oratorio, art song, and choral music. Most recently, Miss DalMonte was thrilled to compete in the 2023 Lyndon Woodside Oratorio Competition as a semi-finalist. As the soprano soloist for the 2022 Emmanuel Bach Festival in Boston, MA, Miss DalMonte worked closely with some of the nation’s top Bach scholars and directors. As a sought-after oratorio soloist, she brings her signature richness of vocal color and extraordinarily sensitive musicianship to works such as Handel’s Messiah, the Fauré Requiem, The Brahms Requiem, and just about every Bach aria written for soprano. Her curiosity and drive to study the works of Bach was significantly enriched by her work as a soloist and chorister with Bach Collegium San Diego, where she sang as a soloist in 2021 and 2020. An avid lover of opera, Miss DalMonte’s performed roles include Adina in L’elisir d’amore, Dorinda in Orlando, Mimi in La Bohème, the title role in Manon, as well as Despina in Così fan tutte. In addition to her passion for solo singing, Miss DalMonte has an endless love for singing choral music. In her 2022 season, Miss DalMonte enjoyed her choral debut with the Chicago Symphony Chorus, Grant Park Music Festival Chorus, the Music of the Baroque Chorus, and Chicago’s beloved Bella Voce. She also has the distinct joy of singing with the top-notch choir at Chicago’s Church of the Ascension every Sunday in the church year. In the rare moments that she’s not singing or teaching, Miss DalMonte loves to take long walks and lounge in the sun with her dog, Apollo. Carolyne DalMonte is a proud graduate of the University of Delaware and Westminster Choir College. She is a student of Braeden Harris and is represented by Vocal Artists Management.
