Praised for “a genuine and deeply satisfying sound” (The WholeNote) and “an arresting presence on the opera stage” (Schmopera), mezzo-soprano Lyndsay Promane was awarded second place in the 2016 Toronto Mozart Vocal Competition and was selected as a finalist in the Atelier Lyrique de l’Opéra de Montréal National Auditions.
In the 2017/2018 season, Lyndsay appeared as the alto soloist in Handel’s Messiah with the Choral Connection (St. Thomas), the Oakville Choral Society and the Pax Christi Chorale. She also appeared as a soloist with the St. Anne’s Festival Orchestra (Toronto). Lyndsay looks forward to being featured in recital at the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto and the Toronto Mozart Festival.
Recent roles include Golde (Fiddler on the Roof), Larina (Eugene Onegin), Poppet (Paul Bunyan), the title role of The Medium and Hansel and Gretel, The Lady with the Hat Box and the Foreign Singer (Postcard from Morocco). Other highlights include Endimione (La Calisto), Little Buttercup (HMS Pinafore) and Bradamante (Alcina). Lyndsay has had the pleasure of creating roles including Lucy Bridgeland and Edwina (Footsteps in Campbell House) and The Woman in his Life (Encounters) with UofT Opera.
As well as being engaged by vibrant opera companies such as MYOpera, Muskoka Chautauqua, Against the Grain Theatre and Tapestry Opera, Lyndsay is an alumna of several summer programs including Summer Opera Lyric Theatre, the Vianden International Music Festival, the Centre for Opera Studies in Italy, and St. Andrew-by-the-Sea’s opera workshop.
Lyndsay is a graduate of the University of Toronto Opera Division where she earned a Bachelors of Music in Performance and a Diploma in Operatic Performance with Honors. She is thrilled to be a winner of the Symphony on the Bay Young Artists’ Competition and is delighted to making her debut with the orchestra.
Lyndsay will sing “Que fais-tu, blanche tourterelle?” from Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette with Symphony on the Bay at our “From Rags to Riches” concert on Sunday, May 13, 2018.
