Soprano Celine Mogielnicki is a versatile artist, recognised for her “delicious” (Opera Today) and “finely balanced" (NY Times) singing. She has appeared in concert with the National Symphony Orchestra, American Symphony Orchestra, National Music Festival, Southwest Florida Symphony, Transfiguration Choirs of New York City, in addition to guest artist engagements with Hudson Valley Chamber Music and the Rhinebeck Chamber Music Society.
Engagements for the 2018/2019 season include Beethoven’s Mass in C with the National Music Festival, a recording for Naxos of Schönberg’s Second String Quartet in a new arrangement for string orchestra, and Heldin, a concert piece exploring the emotional journey of femininity through the music of Richard Strauss to be presented in 2019 in Berlin and New York in collaboration with the 23Arts Initiative.
As a concert artist, her programming inspiration comes from a deep desire to examine important cultural and social issues and a strong instinct to depart from the existing structure that defines the classical concert. Creative projects include an Asperger Syndrome Recital featuring music of selected composers with documented Spectrum related traits (supported by a grant from the Sing for Hope Foundation and the Global and Regional Aspergers Syndrome Partnership) and a "Farm to Table" food sustainability recital; a sold-out event in collaboration with the Mario Batali Foundation and Eataly NYC.
A graduate of the Juilliard School and Dawn Upshaw’s graduate vocal arts program at Bard College, Ms. Mogielnicki has performed with LA Opera, Wolf Trap Opera, Bard Summerscape, Caramoor, Juilliard Opera, and DC Public Opera in both standard operatic repertoire and contemporary opera. Roles include Pamina, Governess, Micaela, Marzelline and Musetta as well as world premieres of works by David T. Little (Vinkensport) and Missy Mazzoli (Song from the Uproar).
Ms. Mogielnicki is a winner of the John Erskine Prize for Artistic and Academic Achievement from the Juilliard School, as well as a prizewinner from the Philharmonic Society of Arlington, Sing for Hope foundation, and the Bel Canto Institute. She was a finalist in the Career Bridges Competition and Washington International Competition, and a semi-finalist in the Deborah Voigt Vero Beach Opera Competition, Joy in Singing Competition and the Brava! Opera Theater James Collier Young Artist Competition.
