Hailed as “ravishing” (New York Times) and possessing “sheer vocal proficiency, a bright, flexible voice, big but controlled, shaded with plentiful color” (Boston Globe), Canadian soprano Linda Tsatsanis enjoys a career that spans the concert hall, opera stage, movies, and television.
Her versatility has made for a distinguished career taking her across the United States, Canada and Europe performing with groups such as the Tallis Scholars, Toronto Symphony, Seattle Baroque Orchestra, Mark Morris Dance Group, Pacific Baroque Orchestra, Early Music Seattle, Pacific MusicWorks, Auburn Symphony, and Seattle Opera. Holding a Master’s degree from Indiana University specializing in Historical Performance, she has collaborated with the country’s most prominent Early Music chamber ensembles being presented by Pacific Baroque Festival, Indianapolis Early Music Festival, San Francisco Early Music Society, Early Music in Columbus, Renaissance and Baroque Society (Pittsburg), Early Music Now (Milwaukee), Magnolia Baroque Festival, Bloomington Early Music Festival, Dumbarton Oaks, and the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art. Mixing studied knowledge of this era along with her unique artistry Ms. Tsatsanis has been praised for breathing a new life into this ancient repertoire.
Her debut solo album with Origin Classical, And I Remain: Three Love Stories, was described as a “seductive recital of the darker sides of 17th-century love” by Gramophone Magazine. Her past collaboration with the Mark Morris Dance Group was the inspiration for her most recent album, Beethoven alla Britannia with Centaur Records released in 2016. She can be heard on the Emmy-nominated PBS documentary When Seattle Invented the Future, various recordings by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Naxos.
She was winner of the Ladies Musical Club of Seattle Frances Walton Competition, the Unicorn (first place) and Audience Award of the Early Music America Renaissance Competition, the Madge Wilson Music Scholarship from Indiana University, and the Alta Lind Cook Prize from the University of Toronto.
Ms. Tsatsanis received her undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto and continued her education with a Master’s degree at Indiana University in the studio of Alan Bennett, working with Early Music Institute faculty such as Nigel North, Elisabeth Wright, Paul Elliott and Wendy Gillespie. Currently, she is a Visiting Scholar at the University of Washington.
