With a gift of changing vocal styles quickly and often, Mikki Sodergren’s vocal flexibility has afforded her many wonderful musical opportunities. Recently, she performed the eponymous role of Carmen with Queens Opera Theatre, Aldonza/Dulcinea (Man of La Mancha) alongside Ron Raines at Amarillo Opera (TX), and has been involved in workshops and readings of several new musical theatre works, including work for Disney Theatricals and The National Theatre of Great Britain. Sodergren has performed as the Alto soloist in Handel’s Messiah with the Johnstown Symphony (PA), the Mezzo-Soprano soloist in the Rachmaninoff Vespers with the twice GRAMMY®-nominated Clarion Choir, and the Mezzo-Soprano soloist in Vivaldi’s Gloria with Pro Arte Chorale, and will repeat that performance in the spring with the period ensemble, REBEL.
She has performed Pops programs with the symphonies of Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Savannah, and the New Jersey Festival Orchestra. Mikki loves ensemble work, touring to Cuba and Ecuador with the ensemble Meridionalis, and toured Handel’s Semele, conducted by Harry Bicket, with the English Concert and the Clarion Choir across Europe and the US last spring. Favorite roles include Eponine (Les Miserables), Brooke/Journalist (Looking at You), and Ali (The Bad Years). Mikki currently serves as the Artistic Director of the American Traditions Vocal Competition in Savannah, Georgia, where all styles of American music are celebrated equally. www.mikkisodergren.com
