Soprano Sherezade Panthaki's international success has been fueled by superbly honed musicianship; “shimmering sensitivity” (Cleveland Plain Dealer); “radiant” voice (The Washington Post); and vividly passionate interpretations, “mining deep emotion from the subtle shaping of the lines” (The New York Times). An acknowledged star in the early-music field, Ms. Panthaki has ongoing collaborations with leading early music interpreters including Nicholas McGegan, Simon Carrington, Matthew Halls, and Masaaki Suzuki, with whom she made her New York Philharmonic debut.
Ms. Panthaki’s 2019-20 orchestral season includes returns to both Minnesota Orchestra (Messiah) and Winter Park Bach Festival (Brahms Requiem) and performances with Houston Symphony (Messiah), Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, St. Thomas Church in New York, and Santa Fe Pro Musica (Telemann’s Passion Cantata). This season she also returns rejoins the viol consort Parthenia for an “Elizabethan Christmas” program and returns to Boston Early Music Festival for their overseas trip to Bremen, performing the role of Ellenia in Graupner’s Antiochus und Stratonica. In recital Ms. Panthaki will be featured at Caramoor Music Festival in “Love and Revenge: The Baroque Diva” with Helicon Ensemble.
