Lyndsay Promane,
mezzo soprano

Praised for “a genuine and deeply satisfying sound” (The WholeNote), Canadian mezzo-soprano Lyndsay Promane has been described as an artist with “an arresting presence on the opera stage” (Schmopera). She is a winner of the 2018 Symphony on the Bay Young Artist Competition and is delighted to be a scholarship recipient from the Art Song Foundation of Canada.

Recent appearances include solo roles in Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater and Handel’s Utrecht Te Deum. Lyndsay recently attended the Orford Music Academy Contemporary Music program where she performed several world-premieres under the direction of Véronique Lacroix. Lyndsay was also selected for an Art of Song Fellowship at the Toronto Summer Music Festival where she had the opportunity to study with pianist Julius Drake and tenor Christoph Prégardien. Later this season, Lyndsay will appear in Joseph Turrin’s The Fir Tree with Hannaford Youth. In recital, Lyndsay looks forward to performing the world premiere of Matthew-John Knights’ song cycle, The Queen of Darkness. She will also make her debut with the Canadian Opera Company Chorus in Verdi’s Otello.

As well as being engaged by vibrant opera companies such as MYOperaAgainst the Grain Theatre and Tapestry Opera, Lyndsay is an alumna of several summer programs including Summer Opera Lyric Theatre, the Vianden International Music Festival, the Centre for Opera Studies in Italy, and the St. Andrew-by-the-Sea Opera Workshop.

Lyndsay is a graduate of the University of Toronto Faculty of Music and Opera Division.
