Claron McFadden

After her studies at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester New York soprano Claron McFadden (°1961) became a big name in both the Baroque as the traditional and modern repertoire. She worked with conductors Sir Andrew Davis, Frans Brüggen and Etienne Siebens, amongst others. In the opera world, McFadden is a much sought-after soloist. Important parts she sang include the title role in Lulu at the opera house Glyndebourne, the role of Zerbinetta in the Nationale Opera production of Ariadne auf Naxos and many Händel roles at various opera houses and festivals, like the title role in Semele at the tenth edition of Opera Days Rotterdam. 

She participated in several projects that combined other art forms, like Alain Platel’s Pitié, the David Kweksilber Big Band and different projects with Muziektheater Transparant (including Over de Bergen, Lilith).  In 2007 she was awarded the Amsterdam Prize for the Arts. McFadden has been nominated for a Grammy Award, she is known for her unique interpretation of contemporary music  and has a lot of world premières to her credit, by Michel van der Aa, Wolfgang Rihm and Joerg Widman, amongst others. Her TEDx talk in 2010 was selected to be shown on the prestigious TED-website.
