Danielle Buonaiuto, soprano 

Danielle Buonaiuto appears as a soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States and Canada, singing a broad range of music encompassing the standard repertoire, rarely-performed operatic works, and modern music, as well as new works written especially for her.

Ms. Buonaiuto made her symphonic debut with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as Knabe 1 in Die Zauberflöte. She appeared in 2013 as a Bel Canto Young Artist at the Caramoor Festival in New York, singing Voix en Haut in Don Carlos. She returns to Caramoor for their 2015 season. She was also seen in Quebec and Ontario as Musetta in La Bohème with Jeunesses Musicales Canada, and appeared as Miss Wordsworth in Albert Herring with the Bronx Opera. Ms. Buonaiuto released her debut recording, Songs of Innocence and Experience, in April 2014, with pianist Bethany Pietroniro.

Ms. Buonaiuto is a sought-after interpreter of new music. In June, she appeared in Miami in Carson Kievman’s highly-acclaimed new opera Intelligent Systems. Other appearances have included Crumb’s Madrigals, Berio’s Folk Songs, Golijov’s Ayre, and Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire. In August 2014, she joined the Lucerne Festival Academy for a performance of Berio’s Coro under Sir Simon Rattle. She has commissioned young Canadian and American composers individually and with her pierrot ensemble, the Lunar Ensemble, for whom she recently secured a New Music USA grant to support new works this season. The group also celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope’s launch with a new dramatic cantata, at the Maryland Science Center, in March 2015.
