American soprano Colleen McGrath has been called “an ominously alluring and vocally superb Queen of the Night” – a role she has performed many times. She has also appeared as Gilda, Baby Doe, Valencienne, Zerlina, Le Fée, and Romilda, and others. Because of her reputation for learning difficult music quickly and providing strong musical and theatrical interpretations, she is often called upon to sing new music. She has premiered new operas by Jay Anthony Gach and James Holland, among others.

Ms. McGrath has sung with companies including San Francisco Opera, Utah Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, American Lyric Theater, Ash Lawn Opera, Opera North, Bronx Opera, Opera New England, and Bangkok Opera. She made her Lincoln Center debut in 2006 with the Little Orchestra Society of New York.

Ms. McGrath currently resides in Florida, but she continues to commute between New York and St. Petersburg. She studies voice with Ruth Golden and acting with Marc Verzatt, and works with a number of talented coaches in New York and Florida.b

A graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and Boston Conservatory, Ms. McGrath was a studio artist with Utah Opera and served apprenticeships at Opera North and Des Moines Metro Opera before launching her professional career.
