Cara Brown is recognized as a vibrant and generous artist, both on and off stage. Since her operatic debut singing Despina in a concert version of Cosi fan Tutte with The Opera Project, she has been inspiring audiences with her distinct voice and compelling honesty.
She has performed in recitals and operas across Western Canada, including performing Micaëla in Carmen with Vancouver Island Opera, where an Opera Canada review described her voice as having “enviable clarity of tone.”
Ms. Brown portrayed Nedda in Mercury Opera’s production of Pagliacci and Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro in Rome, Italy, with Operafestival di Roma.
She has also graced the stages numerous times with Opera NUOVA, in recitals, and performing the roles of the Dew Fairy and the Sandman in Hänsel and Gretel.
In concert, Ms. Brown has appeared as a featured guest performer with Vancouver Island Opera, Red Deer Symphony, and Calgary Concert Opera Company, where she returned and sang the role of Micaëla in a concert version of Carmen.
She recently performed the role of High Priestess in Aida with Edmonton Opera in a role and company debut. Thereafter she was a feature soloist in their prestigious Valentine’s Day Gala fundraising event.
Most recently Ms. Brown sang with the Edmonton Youth Orchestra at the Verdi Festival Gala Concert at the Winspear Centre, from which Edmonton Journal’s Mark Morris noted that, “The highlights were soprano Cara Brown’s touching performance of Violetta’s aria Addio del passato...”
Cara also maintains a private voice studio and is a sought-after adjudicator and clinician.
