BIOGRAPHY

Chantelle Grant's "fine spun mezzo soprano" is a dark voluptuous instrument. Her commanding stage presence is thrilling to experience winning her critical acclaim in both Canada and the US.

The rich, dark hued, even voice of dramatic mezzo soprano Chantelle Grant is a thrilling sound not to be missed. Chantelle will debut with Riverside Opera Company and City Lyric Opera in the 2019 /2020 season. Earlier this year Ms Grant enchanted audiences singing with Trilogy: An Opera Company as Erda in Wagner’s SIEGFRIED and the role of Monisha in Joplin’s TREEMONISH.

Ms. Grant was thrilled to be selected to the inaugural cohort of the Mastersingers programme with Pittsburgh Festival Opera, mentored by Jane Eaglen, while understudying the goddess Fricka in Wagner’s RHEINGOLD. 

Chantelle has had the pleasure of working with outstanding maestri such as Joseph Colaneri, Steven White, Timothy Myers, and Peter Oundjian. Ms. Grant has performed on such illustrious programmes as the American Song Book series at Lincoln Center, and the Kennedy Center Honors. Chantelle’s roles have included Mistress Quickly in Verdi’s FALSTAFF, Madame Larina in Tchaikovsky’s EUGENE ONEGIN, Moyra in Vaughan-Williams' RIDERS TO THE SEA, and Mrs. Grose in Britten’s TURN OF THE SCREW. 

Currently a student of Arthur Levy, Ms Grant holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Windsor, an Artist Diploma from the Glenn Gould Professional School and a Professional Studies Diploma from Mannes College. Chantelle Grant has had the honour of studying with operatic legends, Martina Arroyo, Regina Resnik, and Jane Eaglen.
