About the Artist

With a deep felt commitment to thoughtful musical performances, Irish-American soprano Sinéad White enjoys learning and performing a wide range of vocal repertoire while maintaining an active performing and teaching schedule in North America.

In Vancouver, Sinéad performed as the soprano soloist Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri with Early Music Vancouver and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater as part of Early Music Vancouver’s Bach Festival Emerging Artists Concert. She was the soprano soloist in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in Kelowna, BC with the Okanagan Festival Singers alongside members of the Okanagan Symphony as well as a soprano soloist in Bach’s Mass in B Minor at St. Andrew’s-Wesley United in Vancouver.

She has also studied baroque repertoire with soprano, Nancy Argenta thanks to a generous scholarship from Early Music Vancouver. Sinéad was a fellow at the Sibelius Academy’s Creative Dialogues Program in Santa Fe, NM where she worked on contemporary repertoire with Canadian soprano/conductor Barbara Hannigan and was also a participant in the Canadian Vocal Arts Academy in Montreal.

Aside from her work as a performer, Sinéad thoroughly enjoyed her work teaching at the Delta Community Music School in British Columbia where she maintained a full studio for over three years.

Sinéad is currently based in Toronto, Canada while completing an Advanced Certificate in Historical Performance at the University of Toronto in the studio of Daniel Taylor and obtained both her Bachelor and Masters’ degrees in Voice/Opera at McGill University under the tutelage of Stefano Algieri.
