Emily Lodine is highly regarded for her impressive musical background. Her artistry, silvery voice and mastery of many styles place her in great demand for both concert and operatic performances. She has appeared with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Philip Glass Ensemble, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the symphonies of Omaha, Milwaukee, Detroit, Jacksonville, Indianapolis and Phoenix. She made her Carnegie Hall debut in Handel's Messiah under the baton of conductor and composer John Rutter. Equally sought after for operatic appearances, she created the role of Verena Marsh in Stephen Paulus's opera Summer for Berkshire Opera. Other opera credits include Britten's The Rape of Lucretia with Lyric Opera Cleveland, Puccini's Madama Butterfly with Anchorage Opera, Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro with Opera Grand Rapids, and Verdi's Falstaff with the Pine Mountain Music Festival. Other credits include Messiah with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, Pergolesi's Stabat Mater with Music of the Baroque, Vivaldi's Gloria with the South Dakota Symphony, and Verdi's Requiem with the Wichita Symphony. Emily Lodine graduated magna cum laude from Indiana University with a degree in music theory and is the recipient of a Pi Kappa Lambda scholarship and numerous Margaret Hillis fellowships.
