Elise Groves, soprano, has been praised for her “clarion tone” and “transcendent and soulful” singing. A dedicated and versatile soloist and chamber musician, her repertoire ranges from Medieval to new compositions, with a special focus on the late Renaissance and early Baroque. Recent performances include Mozart’s Requiem and Coronation Mass with The Choir and Orchestra of the Church of the Advent, Bach’s St. John Passion with Ensemble Musica Humana, a program of Renaissance music for royal occasions with Exsultemus, Hildegard’s Ordo Virtutum with Ensemble Musica Humana, and Spem in alium with the Tallis Scholars. A native Oregonian, she received a B.A. and M.A. in Music Education from Oregon State University and an M.M. in Early Music Performance from the Longy School of Music. When Elise isn’t singing, you can find her continuing her lifelong search for the perfect cup of hot chocolate.
