Julianne Baird
Julianne Baird, SopranoJulianne Baird, soprano, has been hailed by The New York Times as a “… national artistic treasure… a well-nigh peerless performer in the repertory of the baroque… she possesses a natural musicianship which engenders singing of supreme expressive beauty.” Julianne maintains a busy concert and recording schedule of solo recitals and performances of baroque opera and oratorio.

Baird is also featured in recitals which integrate music and narrative, among them: Shakespeare’s Musick, The Jane Austen Songbook, Purcell’s Mad Songs, Handel’s London, and Benjamin Franklin’s Musical World (celebrating the famous founding father’s special love of music during his tercentenary in 2006). Her Franklin recitals include concerts with Amherst Early Music, Philomel in Philadelphia, and the Queen’s Chamber Band in Carnegie’s Weill Hall. And with more than 125 recordings to her credit on Decca, Deutsche Gramophone, Dorian and Newport Classics, Julianne Baird is one of the world’s ten most recorded classical artists.
