Praised for her most recent appearance in the title role of Donizetti's Maria Stuarda as possessing "nobility of bearing, acting chops, and technical ease that bear an uncanny resemblance to the young Beverly Sills," Sarah Vautour is quickly making a name for herself among young American sopranos.
Ms. Vautour has recently appeared at the Aspen Music Festival as Mozart and Donna Anna in Stephen Stucky's The Classical Style under the baton of Robert Spano. Additionally, she has performed the roles of Morgana (Alcina) and Le Chatte (L'enfant et les Sortlilèges) with CCM Opera d'arte, and at Harrower Opera Workshop as Rose Maurrant (Street Scene). Furthermore, she has covered the role of Tytania (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) with Opera on the Avalon.
A recent graduate of the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music, Ms. Vautour is the recipient of the CCM Voice Scholarship and the Cincinnati Women’s Club Dieterle Scholarship. She is also the winner of the 2015 CCM Undergraduate Competition and 2015 Three Arts Scholarship Competition. Currently Ms. Vautour is pursuing her graduate studies at Rice University under the instruction of Dr. Stephen King.
