Elizabeth Bishop

American mezzo-soprano Elizabeth Bishop has been praised by Opera News for her "gorgeous voice" and is in equal demand for both opera and concert performances across the country. With a "burgundy mezzo-soprano" the Washington Post describes as "a rich well of color and emotion," audiences and critics alike recognize her as one of this country's predominant singing actresses.

Ms. Bishop has also appeared in solo recitals in both San Francisco and Tokyo as well as for the United States Supreme Court in Washington, DC. She is a former member of the Juilliard Opera Center and a winner of the 1993 Metropolitan National Council Auditions.
