Meagan Martin


Voice, Percussion

Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as a “great glory,” Meagan Martin, mezzo-soprano, thrives in presentations that range from strictly traditional to wildly unconventional. Recognized by OPERA Magazine for her “fine coloratura technique,” she has studied with bel canto luminaries Vladimir Chernov, Renee Sousa, Marilyn Horne, Teresa Berganza, and Silvana Bazzoni Bartoli. She has sung with organizations including Festival Internacional de Panticosa, Steirisches Kammermusikfestival, IMAGO Sloveniae, Gstaad Menuhin Festival, Pacific Opera Project, The Rally Cat, LA Opera Connects, Music Academy of the West, Teatro Nuovo, and Opera UCLA, where she completed her doctorate under the mentorship of Vladimir Chernov and director Peter Kazaras. Performance highlights include Rosina in The Barber of Seville; Fanny Price in Dove’s Mansfield Park; the alto soloist in Crumb’s Night of the Four Moons; Antiope in Vivaldi’s Ercole su’l Termodonte; and the title roles in Lucero’s Juana, Handel’s Amadigi, Brook’s/Bizet’s The Tragedy of Carmen, Massenet’s Cendrillon, Moreno Torroba’s Luisa Fernanda, and Bolcom’s Lucrezia. She recently sang on studio recordings of two song cycles written for her: Elinor & Marianne (Aferdian/Martin Koch), inspired by Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, and Rosa Divina (Piacentini/de la Cruz) performed with GRAMMY-nominated guitarist Mak Grgić.
