Montréal-born soprano, Frédéricka Petit-Homme is celebrated for the warmth and strength of her full tone. She has distinguished herself as a dynamic and engaging performer in roles such as Annie in Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess (Opéra de Montréal), the Third Witness in L’Archange (Chants Libres), the Nurse in Concordia’s Rise Pandemic Opera, Marian Anderson in Backstage at Carnegie Hall (Black Theatre Workshop), and Aida in Parisa Sabet’s Vanishing Point.
Her musical prowess and collaborative spirit have provided her with opportunities to perform with the city’s premier ensembles, notably l’Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, and l’Opéra de Montréal under renowned conductors including Paul McCreesh, Hervé Niquet, Wayne Marshall, and Kent Nagano.
Frédéricka holds a Bachelor of Music degree in vocal performance and a Master of Music degree in conducting both from the Schulich School of Music of McGill University. She is currently pursuing a doctorate in Music Education at McGill University and is the new host for Choral Concert on CBC Music.
Miss Petit-Homme is scheduled to perform with the Phoenix Chamber Choir in May. She will also participate in Bradyworks’ full production of Backstage at Carnegie Hall in the Fall of 2022 and Keiko Devaux’s L’Écoute du perdu in 2023.
