"Radiant soprano" Agnes Zsigovics has recently been hailed for her "purity of sound and expressivity," (The Register-Guard), her voice reviewed as "stylish" (The New York Times), "hauntingly beautiful, creamy, velvety, bell-like" (The Morning Call), and "among the best ever" (Early Music Review). A recording artist for Sony BMG Classical, ATMA Classical, and Analekta, Zsigovics tours internationally, appearing with leading choirs and orchestras in the United States, South America, and Europe. She performed in Bach's St. John Passion with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra under Maestro Helmuth Rilling (2007) and Yannick Nézet-Séguin (2009) and made her Carnegie Hall debut in Weill Hall in 2011.
