The New York Times has called Tamara Acosta’s soprano “solid… her singing clarion-toned and ardent.” Most recently, Ms. Acosta appeared as the soprano soloist in Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem, first with the Symphony of the Mountains in Bristol, TN, followed by a performance with the Cayuga Chamber Orchestra at Cornell University both under the baton of Maestra Cornelia Laemmli Orth. She has previously performed the same piece with Orquesta Sinfonica de Xalapa in Xalapa, Mexico. Prior to that, she was seen as the soprano soloist in Mozart’s Requiem first with the Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes and then with the Cayuga Chamber Orchestra. Other recent performances include Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony and a return to Sarasota Opera to take part in the annual Verdi Concert, singing the role of Amelia in the Grand Counsel Scene and trio from Simon Boccanegra. Continuing to focus on the concert repertoire, Ms. Acosta has recently appeared as the soprano soloist in Poulenc’s Gloria and Stabat Mater and Verdi’s Requiem.
Tamara has appeared with numerous opera companies including Lyric Opera of Chicago, The Santa Fe Opera, Sarasota Opera, Nashville Opera, Opera Pacific and Opera Theatre of St. Louis where she appeared in the world premiere of Judith Weir’s The Vanishing Bridegroom.
In addition to performing, Tamara is a visiting lecturer in voice at Cornell University and on faculty at Opus Ithaca.
