American Prize winner, Corinne Rydman, is described by composer and conductor David Katz as having “… a lovely voice and presentation, careful diction and fine legato…” Corinne strives to serve the music and stories yet to find their deserved place in canon, whether it be the forgotten art songs of Florence B. Price or roles that reflect the issues of our current world. A versatile performer, her previous work ranges from the Baroque to musical theatre to contemporary composers. Recent work includes premiering Feona Lee Jones’ The Story of Wu Wei and Joseph M. Colombo’s Hunter, the musicals Pippi Longstocking and The Secret Garden, as well as traditional operatic repertoire of Monteverdi, Mozart, and Haydn.
She is currently based in the San Francisco Bay area.
