Mezzo-soprano Elise DesChamps appeals to audiences and critics alike as a compelling and charming artist in opera, oratorio and concert. She has been praised by Opera News for her "ability to handle coloratura effusions while bouncing with exhilaration about the stage;" her latest Carmen was described as "rich, powerful, sensuous...the audience who observed her actions and heard her dark, rich mezzo-soprano voice admired her vocal and dramatic skills;" and her debut with Opera Columbus was celebrated as "vocal brilliance and radiant beauty...the warmth of her voice and the fragrance of her beauty lend themselves to her sprite-like believability." Upcoming engagements include a return to Bay View Music Festival, where Elise has been resident artist for five years, a return to The Springfield Symphony Orchestra in Mendelssohn's Elijah, and a debut with The Vancouver Island Symphony in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.
