Hailed as “a lyric soprano of ravishing quality” by the Boston Globe, Laura Choi Stuart has appeared on the mainstage with Boston Lyric Opera, Opera Boston, Annapolis Opera, Lake George Opera, the In Series, and Opera North in roles including Musetta, Adina, Gilda, Pamina, and Frasquita.
Equally comfortable in recital and concert settings, Laura was honored for art song performance as 2nd prize winner at both the 2010 and 2012 National Association of Teachers of Singing Artist Awards and as one of the 2009 Art Song Discovery Series winners for the Vocal Arts Society.
Based in the Washington, DC area, Laura appears regularly with the Washington Bach Consort and the Washington Master Chorale, in addition to solo appearances with many area ensembles. Highlights of the upcoming season include a return to the Washington National Cathedral as Soprano Soloist for Handel Messiah, B Minor Mass and solo cantata 82a Ich habe genug with Washington Bach Consort, Bach Magnificat and Bruckner Te Deum with Choralis, and Laura’s Washington National Opera debut in the American Opera Initiative 20-minute operas in January.
Laura received her training at The Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Program for Singers, Opera North, and Berkshire Opera, as well as The New England Conservatory and Dartmouth College. She began her musical studies in the studio of Joan Frey Boytim and is currently a student of Elizabeth Daniels. She lives in Silver Spring, MD with her husband, son and daughter.
