Bio

Praised for her musicality, consistent tone, and fine musicianship, Charlotte B. is an American soprano based in New York City. Charlotte firmly believes that music and art can touch audiences in ways that words cannot; she strives to emotionally connect and grow with her listeners each time she performs. A native of Dallas, Texas, Charlotte entered her musical career on the violin at the age of four and continued to play for twelve years under Diane Kitzman, principal first violin in the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and violin faculty at Southern Methodist University. As a young violinist, she performed in various venues throughout Dallas, including at the funeral of Jerry Haynes (Mr. Peppermint). 

Charlotte’s most recent operatic roles include Pamina in Die Zauberflöte and Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro. She attended the Aspen Summer Music Festival as a Voice Fellow; there she portrayed the role of Mrs. Nordstrom in Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music at the Wheeler Opera House, and performed in scenes from Rigoletto and A Rake’s Progress.  While at Peabody, she sang Gretel in Peabody Outreach Opera’s production of Hansel and Gretel. Charlotte was also a principal role in Peabody’s Etudes, a unique program featuring new operas written by composition students.  The following year, she appeared as a featured Street Singer in Leonard Bernstein’s MASS under the baton of Marin Alsop, a celebrated conductor and music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.  At the Mannes School of Music, Charlotte studied with esteemed soprano Diana Soviero, and they continue to work closely.  While her operatic repertoire extends from Leîla (Les pêcheurs de perles) to Zerbinetta  (Ariadne auf Naxos), Charlotte also enjoys singing musical theatre selections, jazz, and cabaret.
