Biographical Statement:

Soprano Lori Stinson is a frequent concert and opera soloist in the greater Los Angeles area and the country. She has sung operatic roles with San Diego Opera, Opera Pacific, Glimmerglass Opera, Aspen Opera Theater, Utah Festival Opera, Pacific Repertory Opera, and Long Beach Opera, as well as covering roles at New York City Opera.

As a concert soloist, Ms. Stinson has sung with Los Angeles Bach Festival, Redlands Bowl Symphony, Torrance Symphony, The Marina Symphony, Santa Barbara Symphony, Pacific Chorale, Ventura Master Chorale, and Foothill Master Chorale, as well as many others. Some of the roles and oratorio she has most performed are The Countess in the Marriage of Figaro and Fiordiligi in Cosi Fan Tutte. She has performed as the soloist in Carmina Burana five times in the past seven years. When she was a soloist in the Verdi Requiem with the Cypress Master Chorale, the newspaper there said, “Her large, gleaming soprano soared above all else, and her wonderful performance would have graced any stage in the world. She sang loud, she sang soft, she colored her words, she shaped her phrases. She made the most of her turn in ‘Libera me’ and her soft high note at the end of the a cappella section was dynamite. Her high C was great. She was fabulous.”

She made her motion picture debut as the singing voice of actress Alison Elliott in a 2001 made-for-TV movie, “The Song of the Lark,” broadcast on most public television stations as part of the network’s “Masterpiece Theatre American Collection.” Ms. Stinson recorded more than half a dozen opera and oratorio arias and art songs for the soundtrack in portraying a fictional character through her vocal development from a teenager to a renowned opera diva.
