Catherine St-Arnaud

Singer - Soprano


Praised for her colourful performances, Canadian soprano Catherine St-Arnaud is a promising young lyrical artist. Ms St-Arnaud received the First Prize in the voice category of the prestigious Prix d’Europe, was awarded Third Prize in the voice category of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra Manulife Competition and was a Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions regional finalist (New England). She has also been named a Jeune Ambassadeur Lyrique by the L20 Theater, who awarded her the Québec-Bavière Prize.

Catherine’s versatile, luminous and warm timbre transposes itself beautifully in both baroque repertoire as well as opera. In 2019, she made her debuts with Orchestre Métropolitain and with Kosice Philharmonic Orchestra in Slovakia. We also heard her as a soloist with Les Idées Heureuses, Clavecin en Concert, the Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal, the Montreal Bach Festival, the Montreal Baroque Festival, the Société d’Art Vocal, and the Arte Musica Foundation.

During season 2019-2020, Catherine sung the role of Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro at the Quebec Opera Festival, show which went on a Canadian tour with Jeunesses Musicales du Canada. In October 2020, she sung the role of Lucia in Lucia di Lamermoor in a Jeunesses Musicales production, which should also have been presented at the Quebec Opera Festival and gone on a Canadian tour.

Catherine has many ongoing projects, please visit her website for some future announcements.
