PATRICIA SONEGO, soprano, made her operatic debut in New York City in the world premiere of American composer Jack Beeson’s Sorry, wrong number with the Center for Contemporary Opera under the baton of Richard Marshall, for which she received an enthusiastic review from Robert Prag of Opera News. A champion of contemporary, avant garde, improvisational, and electroacoustic music, Ms. Sonego is in demand to premier new works, many of which have been composed for her. In a new arrangement dedicated to her by the composer, she recently gave the world premier of Prologue & Messages for Raoul Wallenberg by award winning American composer Terry Winter Owens at Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall, with the Alaria Chamber Ensemble. Patricia is co-founder and Artistic Director of Reizen Ensemble, a new music group dedicated to the performance of new compositions, particularly for voice with instruments or electronics.
"Voice of an angel - a beguiling voice hailed for its true sensitivity and drama." ~ The National Post
Attractive to contemporary composers for her ability to sing a number of musical styles, including jazz, popular standards, opera, oratorio, classical, contemporary, electroacoustic, avant garde, and structured improvisation, works are composed or arranged especially for her. A versatile singer with an outstanding three and a half octave range spanning to the G above high C, this petite singer with the powerful voice offers a beautiful rich, warm lyric tone with the requisite flexibility for florid singing.
Equally at home on the stage or in the studio, she also performs jingles, soundtracks, demos, workshops, narrations, and voice-overs.
