Lyric Coloratura soprano, Nikki Einfeld, has been widely recognized for her “high flying virtuosity” (New York Times) as well as her “blazing intensity and ferocious artistry” (San Francisco Chronicle).

A former Adler Fellow and Merola Alumnus with the San Francisco Opera, this Canadian soprano also received acclaim as a Grand Finalist in the 2006 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. 

Her affinity for recital and concert repertoire, including many 20th and 21st century work Premieres, has led to guest appearances with the San Francisco Symphony, Berkeley Symphony Orchestra, The Marin Symphony, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra New Music Festival, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, the Left Coast Chamber Orchestra, Montreal Chamber Orchestra, and the Empyrean Ensemble.
