Stefanie Izzo, soprano

Soprano Stefanie Izzo has been hailed as possessing a “gorgeously rich and full sound” for her work in opera and musical theatre. Her performance of Maria in West Side Story with St. Petersburg Opera was deemed “ideal in every way,” and garnered a Theatre Tampa Bay Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Musical.  Stefanie made her off-Broadway debut in 2012 as Monica in Menotti’s The Medium, and her international debut in 2011 as Adina in L’Elisir d’Amore with Musica Viva Hong Kong. She was chosen as the inaugural recipient of the National Italian American Foundation’s Andrea Bocelli Music Scholarship, and holds a B.M. from NYU and an M.A. and Advanced Performance Certificate from CUNY Queens College. In addition to operatic repertoire, Stefanie devotes a significant amount of her time to art song, particularly that of female composers, and maintains an active concert schedule in the NYC area.  She is a co-founder of the chamber ensemble The Astoria Music Project.
