Coming Soon

Opera News hailed Soprano Dawn Wolski as “exquisite” for her portrayal of Lucia in The Rape of Lucretia under the baton of the late Maestro Julius Rudel. She has performed over two dozen opera roles, multiple concert works, and has been featured in television programs in Europe, China, and throughout the United States. Signature operatic repertoire includes Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos, Königin der Nacht in Die Zauberflöte, Gilda in Rigoletto, Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro, Despina in Così fan tutte, and Cunegonde in Candide. On the concert stage, favorites are Bach’s “Jauchtzet Gott” (BWV 51) and “Wedding” Cantata (BWV 202); Mozart’s Coronation MassRequiem, and Vesperae Solennes de Confessore; Poulenc’s Gloria; Faure’s Requiem; Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem; Orff’s Carmina Burana; Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis; and Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire, among others. Ms. Wolski can be heard and seen on the Spokane Symphony’s 2021 video recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, and will perform Mozart’s Exultate, Jubilate in Masterworks 9 later this season.

Career gems less known to her classical audiences include two enlistments in U.S. Army where she performed with the London Symphony, Boston Symphony, National Symphony, and the Cincinnati Symphony—sharing the stage with performers such as Julie Andrews, Wayne Brady, Wynonna Judd, Pam Tillis, Chris Isaak, as well as several U.S. presidents. She also spent three tours in China on prime television networks, singing both Western Classical selections and Chinese favorites. Projects closest to her heart, however, have included premiering works of living composers, as well as working in more intimate ensemble settings. She will be renewing her annual in-home recital series with Maestro Eckart Preu in May/June 2024.

Dawn holds a Master of Music Degree from Manhattan School of Music in NYC, and a BA in Music from St. Mary’s College of Maryland. She currently serves on the Voice Faculty of Eastern Washington University.
