Lianne Coble, soprano
Lauded by the New York Times as having a voice of “melting, devotional sweetness”, and by the Dallas News as a “luminous soprano [who made] singing seem so easy", soprano Lianne Coble has quickly established herself as a sought-after concert, operatic, and chamber music artist. Highlights of her 2013-2014 season include national finalist recognition in the Oratorio Society of New York Solo Competition, and her debut at the Carmel Bach Festival as a Virginia Best Adams Fellow, where she sang the music of Bach, Grandi, Purcell, and Handel. Additionally, Lianne sang performances of Handel’s Messiah with the Riverside Choral Society, works of Bach & Clérambault with the Dallas Bach Society, and, on multiple occasions, was a soloist on the Carnegie Hall stage with MidAmerica Productions and Manhattan Choral Productions.
In past seasons, Ms. Coble has performed with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Wichita Symphony Orchestra, Syracuse Symphony Orchestra, Buffalo Philharmonic, Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra, West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, Wheeling Symphony Orchestra, Concert Royal, and the Western New York Chamber Orchestra, among others. Her solo engagements have taken her to such illustrious stages as Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, the 92nd Street Y, Symphony Space, and St. Thomas Fifth Avenue. Operatically, she has sung lead roles with Apollo’s Fire, Syracuse Opera, Opera Colorado, Ash Lawn Opera Festival, Berkshire Opera Company, and the CRS Barn Studio in Ithaca, NY.
Ms. Coble is also an active collaborative musician, and has sung in recent seasons with the elite vocal ensembles Musica Sacra, The Clarion Music Society, Seraphic Fire, The American Classical Orchestra Chorus, Ensemble Origo, and the professional ensembles of the Church of St. Ignacius Loyola and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Ms. Coble is a member of the extra chorus of the Metropolitan Opera, having performed in past productions of Boris Godunov, Les Troyens, and Parsifal, as well as upcoming performances of Der Meistersinger von Nürnberg.
Ms. Coble’s honors include national finalist awards from the Oratorio Society of New York, the Jensen Foundation Competition, the American Bach Society Vocal Competition, and Shreveport Opera’s Singer of the Year Competition, as well as national semi-finalist recognition in the Joy in Singing Competition. She was also a Regional Winner of the Metropolitan Opera’s National Council Auditions.
Originally from Syracuse, NY, Ms. Coble received her undergraduate training from State University of New York (SUNY) College at Fredonia, and her master’s degree from Florida State University. She received further training at the Lake Placid Institute for Music and the Humanities, the Austrian American Mozart Academy, and the V.O.I.C.Experience program. She lives in New York City, and currently studies with Mark Oswald.
Lianne can be heard on the Musica Sacra recording "Messages to Myself", under the MSR Classics label, Seraphic FIre's "Reincarnations: A Century of American Choral Music", and a forthcoming recording of Rameau’s Zephyre and Clerambault’s Le Triomphe de la Paix with Concert Royal, under the Centaur Label.
