Minnesotan soprano Evelyn Johnson Zamudio is valued for her vocal versatility across many musical genres. She is a frequent soloist and ensemble singer with the Princeton Festival Baroque Orchestra, most recently performing Vivaldi's Nulla in mundo, pax sincera. As a soloist with the Colgate University Chorus, she has performed Haydn's Creation, Rossini’s Stabat Mater, Dvorak’s Te Deum, Haydn’s Nelsonmesse and Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915. Her other recent concert engagements include J.S. Bach's St. John Passion with the Indianapolis Symphonic Chorus and Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra, Bach's Mass in B Minor with the Bach Chorale Singers, and a recital program titled “Spirit Song: Voices from Now and Hereafter” with Calliope’s Call, a Boston-based organization dedicated to art song. On the operatic stage, leading roles performed include Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia, Center Stage Opera), Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier, IU Opera Theater), Adele (Die Fledermaus, IU Opera Theater), and Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro, Sugar Creek Opera Festival). She was a 2nd prize winner at the Upper Midwest Regional Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and has been a finalist in the Dallas Opera Guild Competition and the Lois Alba Aria Competition. She is frequently sought out for her superior small ensemble singing, and has enjoyed performing with professional ensembles such as Apollo’s Voice, the Ensemble Lipzodes, and The QV Ensemble. She earned music degrees from Saint Olaf College, The University of Texas at Austin, and Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. She currently lives Spain, where she performed in 2018 at the National Auditorium in Madrid as the soprano soloist for Orff's Carmina Burana with the Singerhood Choir.
