Praised for her polished, graceful stage presence “with a lush sound… [and] a delicate sensibility” (Singerpreneur), mezzo soprano Aubrey Hawkinson recently relocated to Los Angeles. She grew up in Mesa, Arizona, where she went on to get her undergraduate degree in Flagstaff. Her Kimmel Center debut was as a Westminster Symphonic Choir soloist in Nico Muhly’s Bright Mass with Cannons orchestral premier performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Her most recent performances include a featured soloist appearance with Phoenix Opera, Charlotte in Massenet’s Werther with Los Angeles’s Independent Opera Company, and singing with the Dickens Carolers of Disneyland. She appeared in the role of Mrs. Grose in Texas Tech University’s production of Benjamin Britten’s The Turn of the Screw as a guest artist. Hawkinson’s performances with the Arizona Opera Chorus include Faust, Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci, and Tosca. She was a featured soloist for multiple Phoenix Opera events as well as a chorister for Phoenix Opera's production of La Traviata and their Dmitri Hvorostovsky Gala. At Westminster Choir College, Mrs. Hawkinson sang the roles of Romeo (I Capuletti e i Montecchi) and Marta (Iolanta). Previously, her roles include First Lady (Die Zauberflӧte), Polly (The Threepenny Opera), and Mrs. Anderson (A Little Night Music). Hawkinson holds a bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from Northern Arizona University, and a Master of Music in voice performance and pedagogy from Westminster Choir College.
