Dominique Labelle
Soprano
New England First Place Winner 1989
National Council Winner 1989

Assistant Professor of Voice at Schulich School of Music of McGill University in Montreal, Dominique Labelle is busy as ever performing here and abroad. After a Christmas performance of “Messiah” with the McGill Chamber Orchestra, the soprano begins 2016 with a return to the Boston area to join the Collage New Music Ensemble at the Longy School of Music to perform “The Second Madrigal: Voices of Women,” by her frequent colleague and collaborator, Pulitzer-prize winning composer Yehudi Wyner. The soprano revisits the Budapest Festival Orchestra for Johann Adolf Hasse’s cantata “L'amor prigioniero,” and then returns home for Shostakovich’s Fourteenth Symphony with I Musici Montréal. In March Dominique sings Fauré’s “La bonne chanson” with Yehudi Wyner at Brandeis, and Shostakovich’s “Seven Romances on texts of Alexander Block” at McGill, University, followed by Mendelssohn’s “Lobgesang” with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra in Stanford, Berkeley, and San Francisco. In summer she returns to Maine’s Mount Desert Festival of Chamber Music for an encore of “La bonne chanson.”

 

Born in Montreal and trained at McGill and Boston Universities, Dominique has been the recipient of a George London Foundation Award and Boston University's Distinguished Alumni Award. She first came to international prominence as Donna Anna in Peter Sellars’ 1991 production of Don Giovanni, set in Spanish Harlem, which she performed in New York, Paris, and Vienna, and then appeared as Gilda, Micaela, Lucia and Violetta for Boston Lyric Opera. Dominique’s repertoire in operas, concerts and recitals here and abroad ranges from the 17th to the 21st centuries. Her recent resume includes Handel’s “La Resurrezione” with Helicon at Yale and at the Morgan Library (NY), Medea in Handel’s Teseo at the Mostly Mozart Festival, the Fauré “Requiem” in New York’s Church of the Ascension,“Messiah” with the Calgary Philharmonic, recitals with Yehudi Wyner at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington DC, and frequent appearances with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Opera Lafayette, Aston Magna, the Carmel Bach Festival, I Musici de Montrél, and the Sarasa Chamber Music Ensemble.
