Praised as a “luscious and velvety soprano voice”, Farah Darliette is fast establishing herself as a voice to be heard for its “...rare combination of bright shimmer and velvety depth, with startling clarity at high C and beyond...”
Ms. Darliette's ability to deliver both glittering coloratura and luxurious, sustained phrasing has lead to a growing list of oratorio, recital and concert engagements, and in 2014 she was announced as a semi-finalist in Chicago's prestigious The American Prize competition, for her work in oratorio and art song. Farah's recent performances include Mary, in Elgar's oratorio The Kingdom; masses by Beethoven and Bruckner; and a rare performance of composer Adolphus Hailstork's compelling settings of MLK, Jr. quotations for soprano, Songs of Love and Justice. A very fine dramatic talent as well, Farah performs operatic repertoire as the glittering mini-mega Diva Minnie Normuse in the semi-staged arie stilizzate performance genre.
Born in Atlanta, GA, Farah earned dual Bachelor's degrees, in Voice from New England Conservatory, and International Relations from Tufts University, with Master of Music studies at Longy School of Music. Ms. Darliette is now a private student of the inimitable Frau Elisabeth Phinney and vocal coach Michael Strauss.
